Cyclife Sweden, Nyköping facility
Localisation: Cyclife Sweden AB is located at the Studsvik Industrial site outside Nyköping on the east coast of Sweden.
Cyclife Sweden has been providing waste treatment services to domestic and international customers for 40 years. All treatment services provided include volume reduction and treatment is always carried out in customer-specific campaigns.
Metals treatment: The metal treatment facility provides a series of services: Segmentation, decontamination, melting (up to 5,000 tons per year), clearance and recycling of produced metal ingots and characterisation and conditioning of secondary waste for return to customer. Large components weighing up to maximum 400 tons and with lengths up to 30 meters can be accepted for treatment. The average recycling rate for the 40,000 tons treated is in a range of 95%.
Thermal treatment of organic waste by incineration or pyrolysis: Dry active waste (plastics, paper, textiles, wood etc.), liquids (oils and water solutions), activated charcoal from filters, and some ion exchange resins. Up to 600 tons per year are treated. All treatment is performed in isolated campaigns to return the residues to the owner.
The pyrolysis facility is fully dedicated to dry active waste from nuclear fuel factories. The aim with the process is to make a breakdown of the organics in a controlled atmosphere and at temperatures which makes it possible to recover the uranium in the ashes after treatment. The uranium in the ashes can then be put back into the nuclear fuel production process.
A high-volume reduction is obtained with both processes.
Material and waste characterisation: Cyclife Sweden has multiple ways to characterise materials and waste : A well equipped analytical laboratory in which chemical and radiological analyses are performed, secondary waste characterisation station, a highly shielded clearance measurement facility (capacity 2,500 tons per year) and mobile characterisation units for in-field characterisation services.
Transport: Access to a roll-on roll-off dock within the Studsvik Industrial site in Sweden. The dock enables a unique, exclusive capability to receive materials and large components from all over the world directly into Cyclife Sweden’s nuclear licensed facility.
