Veolia's Alaron Nuclear Services

For over thirty years, Veolia has been providing a range of speciality services to the nuclear industry at its Alaron Nuclear Services facility in Wampum, Pennsylvania. Strategically located near multiple utilities and other facilities in the nuclear industry, its an ideal transfer site for soils and debris generated through decommissioning work on the East Coast that are ultimately destined for disposal at a low-level disposal site.

Annually, Veolia processes over a million tons of radioactive material at this facility, including dry active waste, metals, soil, rubble and large components such as turbine rotors and large heat exchangers. 

In addition to processing materials for disposal or recovery, Veolia's Alaron facility extends its NRC licenses as a service to several different companies in the nuclear space. These companies have valued partnerships with Veolia and bring their technical experts to Veolia's facility to work under its licenses.
