Decommissioning.info provides links to valuable sources of information on the Internet. It is serving the D&D sector and the governmental institutions that have to deal with D&D issues.
The decommissioning of a facility includes everything from taking out of service up to and including release of the property for unrestricted use and termination of the license.
With nuclear facilities, during the service life, some activation and/or contamination of components and building facilities may occur. Therefore the dismantlement of such a facility needs extra care.
In the planning and preparation of the decommissioning project, many aspects have to be addressed: ALARA-planning, measurements, characterization, decontamination-planning, recycling of materials, waste management, dismantling, license issues, etc.
This site will help you to find relevant information about such issues and references to current and past decommissioning projects.
