Hazardous waste

Hazardous waste management is at the heart of CURIUM's know-how and is an important aspect of every project. We develop and implement optimal waste disposal solutions.

  • Management of toxic, reactive, explosive, flammable, radioactive and asbestos waste, whether liquid, solid or gaseous.
  • On-site pre-treatment of waste to comply with the acceptance criteria of the waste treatment facilities and with transport regulations
  • On-site pre-treatment for risk reduction, volume optimization
  • Waste classification and preparation for transport (including international transport)
  • Development of solutions for on-site storage of hazardous waste
  • Radioactive waste lifecycle management (storage, radioactive decay management)
