A pilot project dealing with radionuclides that are difficult to measure in nuclear decommissioning wastes is being executed in co-operation with VTT during 2018. The main focus of the experimental work has been analysis of 55Fe and 63Ni in pressure vessel steel. M.Sc. work is being produced within the project by Taneli Iso-Markku. The results of the work will be presented in two conferences in 2018: 13th International Symposium on Nuclear and Environmental Radiochemical Analysis: ERA13 in Cambridge, UK, 17-20 September 2018 and NKS-B RADWORKSHOP 2018 in Roskilde, Denmark, 8-12 October 2018.
