Remediation of Kiritimati Island and the Challenges of Hazardous Waste Disposal

This paper describes the work undertaken by Safety and Ecology Corporation Ltd (SEC) on Kiritimati Island, formerly known as Christmas Island. The discussion gives an overview of the type of remediation performed to remove the remains of the legacies left after British nuclear testing. The environment on and around Kiritimati Island has been greatly improved by the remediation carried out. All of the wastes that were to be removed from the island were safely removed from the island for either disposal or recycling.
