international supply chain case study
International Supply Chain Case Study
  • Shipment and treatment of contaminated lead from Sellafield

International Supply Chain Case Study
  • Supply Chain
  • Why process abroad?
  • Why metal melt?
  • Lead transport and melting case study
supply chain
Supply Chain
  • NDA (UK) – Ultimate Customer
  • BNG Sellafield Ltd (UK) - Customer
  • Studsvik (Sweden with UK subsidiary)– Main contractor
  • MHF Logistical Solutions (USA) - Subcontractor
    • MHFLS chosen for their core competence in packaging and bulk transport of radioactive material
  • Studsvik is a leading nuclear services organisation with 1300 employees worldwide and sales of £100M+ per annum
  • Dedicated decontamination and melting facility in Nyköping, Sweden
  • To date processed in excess 15,000 tonnes of metal
  • Nuclear site license under Swedish regulators

why process abroad
Why process abroad?
  • No current facilities in UK that can process metal via melting
  • Currently around five melting facilities abroad
  • To conduct melting trials a need to engage foreign companies
  • Proven technology
  • New Defra LLW policy with new policy on import and export
  • NDA strategic BPEO to use overseas treatment facilities
why melting
Why melting?
  • Acts as an effective decontamination process for most metals and associated radionuclide contamination
  • Achieves complete volume reduction of the material
  • Homogenises the metal for robust characterisation
  • Provides an opportunity for re-use and recycling of valuable material
metal melting by recycling

Recycling 1 tonne of steel saves:

Water use 60% less

Emissions 86% less

Energy 75% less

1.5t iron ore

0.5t coal

1.3t solid waste

Metal melting by recycling
  • The Studsvik Treatment Concept is based on recycling the treated material and minimising the volume of contaminated material that is returned to the customer
  • Typically >95% of the incoming material to Studsvik is recycled, for lead up to 97% is recycled

  • Customer sourced candidate material for melting
  • Waste characterisation of the material
  • Package assessment and package approval
  • Transfrontier shipment documentation preparation
  • Letter of acceptance for the treatment of the lead

  • Loading of the lead
    • Delivery of the containers to Sellafield
    • Loading of the lead in the packages
    • Securing of the packages
    • Preparation of transportation paperwork

lead melting trial6
Lead Melting Trial
  • Release of ingots for re-melting is made in accordance with the European Commission’s Recommendations in RP89
  • Network of metal producers in Sweden familiar with the ingots as a feedstock
  • Secondary wastes (slag, blasting residues, filter dust) are conditioned, packaged and returned to the country of origin for disposal
lead melting trial7
Lead Melting Trial
  • Currently First and Second Shipment successfully delivered
  • First shipment of lead melted successfully with second shipment melting currently being processed at facility
  • BNG/Studsvik/MHFLS preparing for third shipment
  • Teamwork built on the core competences of the individual companies
  • Proven technology
  • Supply chain built on core competences of companies
  • Successful trial melt
  • Further scope for working together
