On Tuesday 8th and Wednesday 9th October, Managing Director Sean Saunders and Production Manager Mark Johnston attended the Integrated Waste Management Conference held at Rheged Centre in Penrith, Cumbria.
The Nuclear Industry Association described the event as “the biggest biennial conference of its kind outside of the US.  This event will bring site licence companies, consultants, process designers, operatives, supply chain companies, government officials and regulators together to debate progress to date, discuss how best to realise the opportunities from integrated waste management and converge on the benefits, opportunities and risks from a truly integrated waste management lifecycle.
The conference will share what has been done so far and enable the sharing of practical solutions.  It will cover the full lifecycle of radioactive waste, waste routes and consignor activities with a focus on waste management integration and optimisation. An accompanying exhibition gives companies the opportunity to demonstrate their capabilities and showcase technologies and process optimisation successes.
Topics will include Strategy, regulation and policy, waste characterisation, retrievals, treatment and conditioning, packaging, transport, storage and disposal”
During the conference, Sean and Mark were able to discuss and demonstrate the capabilities of Bendalls Engineering to a variety of different industry representatives.
