Uranyl and Thorium compound waste (Usually labeled Uranyl Acetate, Uranyl Nitrate, Thorium Acetate, and Thorium Nitrate) also known as N.O.R.M. waste (Sometimes labeled as Oxidizers) are typically found in the academic environment used for demonstrations, but have also turned up in the industrial setting. Many times, Th-232 and U-238 (Thorium 232 and Uranium 238) have been sitting in storage for many years leading those who discover the NORM waste also known as compounds to ask, "What do I do with Uranyl or Thorium Nitrate?" "Are there any companies that can dispose of my Uranyl Acetate and / or Thorium Nitrate?" ADCO Services has been serving customer's needs for Uranyl Acetate and Nitrate as well as Thorium Nitrate and Acetate disposal since 1965 from ADCO Services' centrally located Chicago, Illinois facility.
Uranium and Thorium compounds should not be left to sit as they can sometimes oxidize, lids can become loose, and contamination can be present on the outsides of the bottles or contaminate a workspace. Compounds such as Uranium and Thorium should be handled with care and ADCO Services' personnel is trained in the proper disposition of U-238 and Th-232 wastes. Let ADCO Services prepare and ship your Uranyl and/or Thorium compounds for disposal to a licensed radioactive processor today.
