What is OREX™?
OREX is the trade name for an innovative line of products engineered specifically for the nuclear industry. Our products are manufactured from a special, degradable polymer that is environmentally friendly. Following use, OREX products are treated off-site using a proprietary process that dissolves them in high temperature water (> 190 degrees F.), decontaminates them and ultimately chemically converts them to carbon dioxide and water, much of which is returned to the environment for re-use. Radioactivity is removed during the treatment process and collected on filters for subsequent handling and proper disposal as radioactive waste. This process eliminates waste: an entire 20’ long sea-land container full of used OREX materials can be ultimately placed in a one gallon container!
