    AtomEco 2015

    AtomEco is an international platform to discuss issues of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel, decommissioning of nuclear facilities and environmental remediation.

    The event is traditionally held as an exhibition for Russian and international companies, as well as leaders in the field of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel.

    The event included an extensive business programme with the participation of government representatives and leading environmental organisations.

    AtomEco provided a unique opportunity to expand scientific and business ties, and showcase products and services to the Russian and international business community.

    Presentations

    Session 1: Strategies – Governmental, Industrial and Business Strategies for the Decommissioning of Nuclear Power Plants

    This session aimed at providing a wide overview of the variety of strategies for decommissioning of Nuclear Power Plants. Main strategic approaches worldwide were presented and key influencing factors and decision making criteria were discussed from the different points of view of national and international policy makers, regulators as well as operators and service providers. Special attention was also paid to their general expectations in strategy making.

    Session 2: Practices – Practical Experience and Future Challenges for the Decommissioning of Nuclear Facilities

    This session addressed practical aspects and approaches in decommissioning and dismantling. Essential issues regarding the decision for the "right" decommissioning and dismantling concept and success factors of an efficient decommissioning were discussed highlighting the state-of-the-art and "best practice" during planning, technical realization, logistics and radioactive waste management. Expectations of players practically involved in decommissioning and dismantling activities were reflected.

    Session 3: Challenges – Different Roles and Expectations of Stakeholders in the Decommissioning Process

    This session focused on the role of stakeholders in decommissioning and challenges, and success factors in coping with their needs. Representatives from different stakeholder groups (communalities, local administrations, environmental organizations, implementers, regulators etc.) were invited to present and discuss their point of view, experience, concerns and expectations related to a decommissioning project.
