Studsvik is at the forefront of radioactive waste management providing solutions across a range of industries with Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM). We provide turnkey solutions to our customers to ensure their radioactive materials are handled safely and wastes disposed in line with regulatory requirements.

Studsvik has built upon its extensive experience of managing the nuclear industry’s legacy waste and can bring this expertise to projects within the NORM industrial activity sector.
