Project milestones

Construction of the new facility was completed in December 2021.

The next stage of this project, the fit-out of the ANSTO Synroc® process technology within this new facility and the associated hot cells, is now underway.

The final stages include cold and then hot commissioning phases before receiving approval by the regulator to commence operation.

Once finished, Australia will be the first country in the world with co-located and integrated facilities for the production of Mo-99 (via ANSTO’s Mo-99 Manufacturing Facility) and treatment of intermediate-level liquid waste arising. 

Treatment Process

ANSTO Synroc® operates under a quality assurance framework to ensure certifications and accreditations are met.
