Environment and Safety

The safety of our employees, members of the public, and the environment is our first priority. At our facilities in Peterborough and Toronto, emissions are measured to ensure we are operating in a safe and responsible manner. Monitoring results show that our facilities have very low emissions.

Additional information on environmental performance for both the Toronto and Peterborough facilities can be found in the latest Annual Compliance Report here.

About Regulation Limits:

Airborne and liquid effluent discharged from fuel fabrication facilities like BWXT NEC in Peterborough and Toronto are regulated by concentration limits. Action Levels and our own Internal Control Levels are set at just a fraction of Licence Release Limits, which are set by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), to keep public exposure to emissions and any radiation as low as possible. 

Although Action Levels are set below Licence Release Limits, exceeding an Action Level is considered a CNSC reportable event in which BWXT NEC must notify the Commission within 24 hours of becoming aware that an Action Level has been exceeded. Accordingly, BWXT NEC has established Internal Control Levels for various radiological and environmental parameters that are set even lower than Action Levels to act as an early warning system. An Internal Control Level exceedance results in an internal investigation and corrective and preventive action.
