For the past 10 years, Cyclife UK’s MRF (Metals Recycling Facility) site near Workington in Cumbria has been offering solutions to meet the growing needs of nuclear industry to reduce and recycle their waste. In total, 15,000 tonnes of waste have already been treated coming from every major nuclear facility in the UK.
Low Level Waste Repository Ltd. (LLWR) celebrated the anniversary with Cyclife, commenting that it has been 10 years since LLWR sent the first consignment to the Metals Recycling Facility, and after a decade of waste processing several thousands of tonnes have now been recycled.
Since its acquisition by the EDF Group in 2016, the company has tripled the number of its employees to nearly 80. Cyclife UK has seen a significant increase in its turnover to around EUR12 million. MRF is a leader in the treatment of low-level radioactive waste, with a market share of more than 90% for metallic waste in the UK. For its 10th anniversary in 2019, Cyclife UK warmly thanked its customers and stakeholders by presenting them with an honorary trophy symbolising the strength of their customer relationship.
With its three sites the United Kingdom, Sweden and France, its subsidiaries Cyclife Digital Solutions, Cyclife Engineering and more recently Graphitech, the Cyclife platform provides solutions for the optimised and sustainable management of nuclear waste and the decommissioning and dismantling of nuclear installations. Its range of activities extends from building the physical and radiological inventory of a nuclear installation, on-site technical support for decontamination and a wide range of dismantling services including cold and hot segmentation (e.g. for primary circuits or other reactor cooling systems).
