AVANTech has the facilities, personnel, and capabilities to perform bench, engineering, and full-scale testing of non-radioactive processes and systems. Many of our technology maturation plans (TMP) are developed and conform to the technology readiness levels associated with U.S. DOE Order 413.3B.
AVANTech is known worldwide for its capabilities for removal of ion selective contaminants from liquids. Cesium, Strontium, Chromium, and Technetium are some of the ions removed from our designed and fabricated systems. These include our SARRY System at the Fukushima Nuclear Plant, TSCR System at DOE Hanford Site, Wastewater Treatment System at DOE ORNL, and 200 West Groundwater Pump and Treat System at DOE Hanford Site.
