Given the importance that the European Demolition Association is acquiring in the atomic energy sector, those members who perform decontamination activities will also be listed as a member of the European Decontamination Institute, EDI, for free.
The European Demolition Association is getting more and more involved in the circular economy, waste management, and nuclear energy in order to provide its experience in these areas, so it is necessary to highlight the expertise that the companies have in radioactive waste management.
And the best way to achieve it is through EDI, a non-profit organization that that has been working since 2013 to promote the interests of the decontamination sector which it represents, ensuring the highest standards of safety, professional integrity, and quality.
One evidence of this is that EDA and EDI have been invited by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to give their perspective on how the associations can get more involved in nuclear energy.
This is due to the progressive nuclear decommissioning and the need not only for companies specializing in demolition but also for companies specializing in decontamination of hazardous waste.
