Nitrate, Acetate, and Oxidizer Disposal

Uranium (U-238 / U-Nat) & Thorium Compound (Th-232) N.O.R.M. Waste Disposal

Thorium nitrate disposal

ADCO Environmental Services, LLC coordinates turnkey waste disposal and environmentally friendly recycling options for Uranium and Thorium compound wastes (Usually labeled Uranyl Acetate, Uranyl Nitrate, Thorium Acetate, and Thorium Nitrate) also known as N.O.R.M. waste (Sometimes labeled as Oxidizers). Naturally occurring radioactive materials such as Uranyl Acetate, Uranyl Nitrate (U-Nat), and Thorium Nitrate are typically found in the academic environment used for demonstrations in such places as high school Chemistry labs and college laboratories, but we have also disposed of Nitrates and Acetates from government institutions and industrial settings. At ADCO Environmental Services, LLC, we have been assisting generators with the proper disposal of Uranium Acetate, Uranium Nitrate as well as Thorium Nitrate and Acetate waste since 1965 in The United States.

Please note that Uranium and Thorium compounds should not be kept in storage for long periods of time as they can sometimes oxidize if exposed to outside air, lids can become loose over time, and contamination can become present on the outsides of the bottles or even contaminate an entire workspace!

Compounds such as Uranium and Thorium should be handled with the utmost care keeping in mind that radioactive contamination could be easily spread if not carefully handled. ADCO Environmental Services, LLC’ team is fully trained in the proper disposition requirements for U-238 (U-Nat) and Th-232 (Th-Nat) waste. We take the frustration and complexity out of your radioactive oxidizer disposal when you have ADCO Environmental Services, LLC prepare your paperwork and ship your Uranyl and/or Thorium compounds for disposal to a licensed radioactive processing facility.
