About Kurion

A Global Challenge

According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, more than 29 million metrics tons of nuclear waste dating back to the Manhattan Project await cleanup at commercial and weapons sites around the world. The most unique and problematic waste have troubled scientists for decades, calling for a new approach.

Furthermore, commercial nuclear plants offer a proven, large-scale energy source to meet the growing demand for energy worldwide. Yet questions persist surrounding the waste.

Innovation for a Cleaner Future

Kurion was founded in 2008 to solve the most challenging technical problems in nuclear waste and to realize nuclear power’s clean energy promise. We have attracted some of the most respected leaders in the industry to meet this historic challenge. Learn more about the Kurion team.

We have invested millions of dollars to create new technologies that lower the total lifetime cost of waste disposal and put the best environmental solutions within reach.

Kurion’s name joins “curie” and “ion” and symbolizes the collaboration between people and technology. This philosophy is reflected in how we operate: we partner with industry leaders to deploy Kurion’s technologies around the world.
