EnergySolutions and Laurentis Energy Partners support new Canadian waste facility

30 December 2021

EnergySolutions Canada on 22 December announced a contract with Laurentis Energy Partners, a subsidiary of Ontario Power Generation, to provide licence support for a new nuclear-materials sorting facility in Kincardine, Ontario.

The facility will be called Western Clean-Energy Sorting and Recycling (WCSR). Its purpose is to sort low-level radioactive materials, such as used worker garments, small tools, mops and rags, to reduce volumes through processing and to maximise the recycling and free release of clean materials. A ground-breaking event took place in November and construction is already underway. The facility is expected to be in operation in 2022.

“Building on our longstanding relationships in the Canadian nuclear business and our deep experience in radioactive materials management, we are extremely excited about this venture with Laurentis Energy Partners to provide our licensing expertise in the operation of the new facility,” stated Jeff Richardson, COO for EnergySolutions. 

“Laurentis Energy Partners is an innovator and leader in the clean-energy industry, offering expertise in a wide range of services including nuclear generation, inspections, and medical isotopes. We’re honoured to partner with them in this innovative and important endeavour,” he added.
