“Our particular strength is in the integration of complex scientific, technical, economic and societal information”

MCM offers consultancy and advisory services aimed principally at decision-makers, programme planners and technical managers who wish to access decades of global experience to ensure that cost-effective projects are at the leading edge of the international state-of-the-art.

We cover all aspects of managing the wastes from the back-end of the nuclear fuel cycle, as well as radioactive materials from medicine, industry and research.

Our particular strength is in the integration of complex scientific, technical, economic and societal information to identify, quantify and justify practical and strategic waste management options.

We also have key specialist skills across the areas of geosciences, chemistry and natural hazards, with considerable global experience in the geological disposal of radioactive wastes and in the evaluation of radioactive contamination

Unlike most international consultancies, the MCM team has a very extensive list of external publications built up over the last 4 decades. This highlights our commitment to peer review, ensuring that we are producing work of the highest quality, and illustrates our wide range of expertise in radioactive waste management and associated technical areas.
