Electrically Assisted Surface Decontamination (EASD)
High, intermediate and low level waste
Decontamination of metallic waste can make orders of magnitude reduction in disposal cost.

Treatment can be achieved in-situ (e.g. inside process vessels, pipes, or flat surfaces) or ex-situ in immersion baths.
EASD – Examples
Before and after treatment
A variety of metal samples from nuclear sites have been taken to free release levels within a matter of minutes.
