First-of-a-Kind, At-Tank Mobile System
The KMPS® is composed of five modified ISO shipping containers. It employs a modular, plug-and-process design that is similar to the company’s successful cesium-removal adsorption system, and supplemented with additional filtration capabilities.
Our modular systems have been used worldwide, providing solutions for isolating waste from the environment. They have been used to treat contaminants in many types of projects: groundwater remediation, nuclear fuel pools and Nuclear Power Plants.
Our first mobile processing system started operating at the Fukushima Daiichi site in early October 2014 and removed more than 99.95% of the strontium from the water, surpassing decontamination targets.
We were among the first responders to assist TEPCO in the Fukushima tsunami recovery. To date, our technology has been used to remove more than 3.7E17 Bq (10 million curies) of Cesium from more than 370,000 m3 (about 100 million gallons) of aqueous waste. We have also deployed a mobile technology platform to remove Strontium from water held in hundreds of storage tanks on the site. At the reactors themselves, our Remote Access technologies are used to inspect and repair reactor containments.
Veolia Nuclear Solutions has developed several classes of Ion Specific Media (ISM) to target and remove radioactive isotopes (cesium, strontium, technetium, iodine and among others) from aqueous solutions.
Veolia Nuclear Solutions develops effluent treatment systems to separate and remove radioisotopes from the most challenging effluent streams. A comprehensive package of best in-class technologies are used to resolve the most complex radiological wastewater challenges.
