Decommissioning and Decontamination

Our business area "Decommissioning and Decontamination" offers full service as regards planning and implementation of all kinds of decommissioning work.

Our business portfolio includes:

Dismantling of facilities, decontamination, laundry

  • Decommissioning of facilities according to StrSchV and AtG
  • Decommissioning of non-nuclear facilities such as accelerators, radionuclide laboratories, neutron generators, research and nuclear medicine facilities
  • Decontamination and conditioning of residues and radioactive waste
  • Supply of temporary radiation protection workers (e.g. radiation protection engineers, qualified radiation protection workers)
  • Checks for contamination, clearance measurement of buildings and components according to the radiation protection ordinance including provision of radiological measurement devices
  • Laundry service for contaminated clothes and leasing of work clothes


Accelerators / cyclotrons

During the operation of accelerators and cyclotrons radioactive isotopes are generated as a result of physical interactions in parts of the device. These activated components are subject to the radiation protection ordinance and need to be dismantled professionally.

We offer the following services:

  • Development of customer-oriented solutions for dismantling
  • Measurement services and identification of activated components
  • Professional decommissioning and takeover of activated components as well as decontamination
  • Clearance measurments of activated components according to § 29 radiation protection ordinance

Being in consultation with the relevant authorities at all times, we can provide you an individual concept for dismantling and disposal.
With our long-standing partners, we can guarantee you a time and cost-optimized realization of your project.

Gamma-Service Recycling GmbH has decommissioned and disposed more than 150 accelerators over the past few years.
