During operation and maintenance, or decommissioning of nuclear power plant, various kind of waste should be treated, and exposure control is also required. These wastes have a wide range of contamination, different composition of nuclides, and a different shape, so each measurement instrument would be optimized for its use especially for very low level radioactivity measurement. TOSHIBA provides appropriate equipment for any needs to discriminate the very low and non radioactive waste to save cost of waste disposal, based on our original and innovative technology. For alpha emitting nuclides, we are ready to supply instruments based on ionized particle measurement technology. For beta, gamma-emitting nuclides, we are ready to customize a shape of detector based on our original plastic scintillation material. Some examples are introduced.
