As a nuclear engineering consultancy, it is the ethical task of TBE to work on an as safe as possible disposal of the existing nuclear waste, and to minimise the nuclear waste that is generated.
Waste minimisation means an efficient characterisation (read more about measurement techniques) of a nuclear waste volume, safe but realistic acceptance criteria for (final) disposal of nuclear waste, an efficient design of nuclear systems to avoid waste production, …
