The Synroc waste treatment plant at ANSTO


ANSTO is currently constructing a Synroc waste treatment facility to treat waste from the newly expanded Molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) production facility, being constructed as part of the ANSTO Nuclear Medicine project. The Synroc plant will also treat legacy waste from past production.


Key benefits of Synroc technology include:

  • Flexible technology capable of treating waste from past and future Mo-99 production
  • Large volume reductions
  • Reduces transport and disposal costs
  • Regulatory approval to build the expanded Mo-99 production facility was predicated on implementing a safe, secure waste management system that Synroc provides.
