This research work is aimed at the assessment of new procedures in the decommissioning of the Nukem-A facility, a plant used for over 30 years for the fabrication of Material Test Reactor (MTR) and Thorium High Temperature Reactor (THTR) fuel elements. Important issues in this work are the preparation of detailed uranium and thorium contamination distribution maps in walls and floors, the execution of various dismantling and decontamination operations under health physics control, the large-scale treatment of resulting primary waste and the minimisation of secondary waste.
