Game Changer!
Presenting our ideas at Nuclear Frontiers.

3 March 2020 – University of Birmingham.

We’re looking forward to presenting the latest developments in our pioneering Molten Metal Manipulation (M3) programme at Nuclear Frontiers – the NWDRF’s annual showcase for research and development in nuclear decommissioning and waste management.

With support from the National Nuclear Laboratory/FIS360 Game Changers innovation programme, we have utilised our expertise in oil & gas well plugging and abandonment using low melting point alloys, to develop a range of technologies and application techniques for various nuclear decommissioning challenges.

These include an in-situ metal casting technique that can be used in air or underwater for the rapid repair of cracks in civil structures; technologies for in-situ repairs to cracked tubes, pipes and fittings; a novel means of encapsulating various materials using a low temperature metallic deposition system, and self-healing seals for use in areas at risk of seismic activity.

Together with other inspiring Game Changers, we’re helping provide new solutions to decommissioning challenges.
