IFIC and ENRESA develop innovative technology to characterise radioactivity stored in nuclear waste bulks
The Institute of Corpuscular Physics (IFIC, UV-CSIC) and the National Radioactive Waste Company (ENRESA) have developed a system to visualise the activity of waste stored in nuclear safety bulks. It is a technique that combines gamma ray tomography and artificial vision. Its portability and independence from the geometry of the radioactive waste allow complex tomographic reconstructions to be carried out, thus optimising nuclear waste classification processes.
