The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority has joined forces with the Japan Atomic Energy Agency to share expertise in nuclear decommissioning and radioactive waste management. The NDA – which is responsible for cleaning up and decommissioning 17 sites in the UK including Sellafield in Cumbria – has signed an agreement that will see skills, knowledge, research, information and technology exchanged with the JAEA, Japan’s research and development institute for nuclear energy. JAEA’s work includes undertaking research and development work to support the decommissioning and environmental restoration of TEPCO’s stricken Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power station. It is also aiding the decommissioning of the Monju fast breeder reactor and the Tokai Reprocessing Plant.
