Sweden’s Studsvik has agreed to sell its low-level radioactive waste operations in Sweden and the UK to EDF of France. At the same time, the two companies have agreed to collaborate in decommissioning and waste management. Under an agreement signed yesterday, EDF subsidiary EDF Développement Environnement will acquire Studsvik’s waste treatment business and facilities in Sweden and the UK for SEK355 million ($44 million), subject to certain closing adjustments. The scope of the transaction includes Studsvik’s waste treatment assets and facilities for metal recycling, incineration and pyrolysis located at the Studsvik site near Nyköping in Sweden, as well as the metal recycling facility near Workington in the UK. Low-level waste treated in these facilities is either recycled, free-released or volume-reduced and returned to the customer for final storage.
