Exploring a better tomorrow

We are constantly exploring. And have been since 1952. Driven by our passion for nuclear technology and empowered by our unique infrastructure. SCK CEN explores the limits of the possible. In this way, we continuously expand our knowledge in various nuclear fields. But no matter how many directions we explore, we always have the same goal in mind: developing innovative nuclear applications for a better world. Why? Because we are convinced that we can make a gigantic difference with one of the smallest elements on Earth – the atom. Both now and in the future. For people and nature. Read on and you will discover exactly how we do it.

Nuclear melting furnace also receives green light from Europe

SCK CEN and CRM Group boost the circular economy in dismantling by constructing a nuclear furnace 

The European Commission has given the final go-ahead for the development of the Belgian melting furnace for research purposes. The furnace will encourage the creation of a circular economy in nuclear dismantling, by enabling larger quantities of metal to be given a second life than can possibly be achieved using the melting technologies currently available. As the nuclear research centre SCK CEN and the Centre for Metallurgical Research (CRM Group) jointly stated, “This decision by the European Union reconfirms the social importance of our plan.”
