Krasnoyarsk Mining and Chemical Combine Uranium Reprocessing Plant
Located in Zheleznogorsk (in Southern Siberia), the Krasnoyarsk Mining and Chemical Combine is part of the Rosatom Group, a Russian state company and global leader in nuclear energy. The site has evolved into an interim storage facility and a commercial mixed oxide (MOX) fuel fabrication facility, where spent nuclear fuel is reprocessed as fuel for thermal type nuclear reactors.
Penetron products (PENETRON topical material and PENECRETE MORTAR) were specified to best ensure a long service life for the site’s reinforced concrete structures and protect them from the damaging effects of groundwater and radiation. Penetron crystalline products also provide self-healing of microcracks, a crucial aspect of any durable concrete structure.
