Radioactive Waste Management


Sudan started the radioactive waste management program since 1995. The inventory of radioactive sources and radioactive waste in the country is established and updated. A central radioactive waste management facility was established in Soba. The goal of the unit is to collect spent sealed sources in the country and safely store and condition them. These include Ra, Co-60, Cs-137 and Sr-90 sources, neutron sources and High Active Spent Sealed sources (SHARS)
