Centre for Radiochemistry Research

The Centre for Radiochemistry Research (CRR) was established in 1999 in a partnership with BNFL. It is unique in the UK, forming a national focus for radiochemistry research, and we are primarily interested in the chemistry of the radioactive elements, particularly Tc and the transuranic elements. Our research activities link closely to many aspects of the nuclear industry, from process chemistry to decommissioning, waste management and environmental impact.
