NSG Decommissioning Newcastle University Cyclotron

NSG Environmental Ltd is delighted to announce it was recently awarded a contract to decommission and dispose of an ABT Biomarker Generator (BG-75) cyclotron at Newcastle University.

The redundant equipment was previously used for the production of positron emitting isotopes for radiochemistry/pre-clinical positron emission tomography (PET). The space currently occupied by the cyclotron is required for a new laboratory at the North East research university. Having recently decommissioned cyclotrons at GE Healthcare’s Amersham site, NSG’s vast nuclear decommissioning and waste management experience was a key factor in being awarded the contract.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
