Since the incinerator in Studsvik was taken into operation in 1976 it has been operating at a level of 350–500 tonnes per year. The incinerator treats waste from both the nuclear industry and from other sectors generating radioactive waste such as hospitals, research companies/facilities and academic institutions. The incineration facility has been upgraded several times during its lifetime. The upgrades includes, change of off gas treatment as well as new control systems and currently the commissioning of a sister pyrolysis plant. Several new waste streams have also been approved for treatment in the last few years.
