As its name suggests, NORM (Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material) refers to materials that are naturally radioactive. Certain minerals contain significant levels of natural radionuclides that are extracted and processed during industrial handling. The subsequent processing of these materials can increase their concentration. NORM waste is generated in a variety of sectors and is found in waste metal, sludge, rubble, fluids, etc. It is a common occurrence in the mining and oil and gas extraction industries.

Is Waste Incineration environmentally friendly?
Waste Valorization has become the alternative technology for energy recovery that has minimum impact on the environment and is capable to generate heat and electricity. Pyrolysis plants and waste incineration plants include flue gas treatment systems afterwards that collect and eliminate the gases generated, following an efficient and safe procedure, to guarantee maximum respect for people and the environment.
Tecam’s tailor-made design
You can always count on tailor-made solutions with Tecam and, where necessary, the development of specific components, software and/or materials. Our technicians engage with every project, using their expertise and knowledge to design customised equipment for each case and customer.
No matter how big or complex the problem, Tecam is the technology partner that will provide you with the solutions you need at all times.
Tecam’s solutions for the treatment of NORM waste
Tecam leads the world in the design and commissioning of complete facilities for the treatment of NORM waste.
Our systems include mixed equipment that allows for the treatment of different types of NORM waste (solid, flakes, sludge, oils, etc.) and can be combined with facilities for the treatment of gases.
In line with the customer’s needs and the specific characteristics of the project, plants for the treatment of NORM waste can include storage and pre-treatment systems, incineration facilities with rotary kilns, solidification facilities, recovery equipment, and other complementary facilities that can operate independently or in combination with others.
Our facilities are customised and tailor-made to meet the requirements of each project, and offer the following advantages (among others):
• Fully automated systems requiring minimal human intervention.
• Components sourced from leading brands and software specifically developed by Tecam.
• Option of treating multiple types of waste in a single system: solid, liquid, resin, combustible waste, etc.
We specialise in the treatment of NORM waste for large industries. If you have a specific problem or need to implement a coordinated solution across a number of different plants, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Case study: ADNOC
ADNOC is one of the world’s leading petrochemical companies, producing more than 40 million tonnes of refined products every year.
Tecam carried out the engineering, installation and commissioning of an incineration plant for NORM (radioactive) waste, along with a flue gas treatment system.
If you would like to find out more about this project, which is unlike any other in the world, you can download the full case study.

Advantages of Waste Valorization
Waste Valorization is a treatment process that involves the combustion of organic substances contained in waste materials by means of high temperatures. Waste Valorization technology can be installed in several sectors to treat hazardous waste, refining residues,...
