The Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) is partnering with Swedish company Quintus Technologies in deploying new technology for the treatment of waste from nuclear medicine production at the nuclear agency.

ANSTO says the Australian “first–of-a-kind technology” will be based in the soon-to-be-built Synroc radioactive waste treatment facility (SyMo), which is part of the $168 million ANSTO Nuclear Medicine (ANM) project.
