Radioactivity monitoring: IRSN licenses its patent on tritium measurement


A complete solution for taking and processing of airborne tritium samples has been developed by E2S Innovation in collaboration with IRSN. Tritium is one of the most common radionuclide discharged by nuclear facilities under permitted release.

The new solution is based on the passive trapping system of airborne tritium patented by the Institute in 2012 for both routine environmental radiological monitoring and accident situations.

The passing trapping system requires less technical handling, which reduce the sources of uncertainty. In accident situations, it also makes possible to take tritium contained in the atmospheric water vapor in less than an hour, compared to the 24 to 48 hours before.

As part of the operating license of the patent, E2S Innovation will benefit from the technological and competitive intelligence conducted by IRSN in tritium monitoring. As an industrial partner, E2S Innovation will be able to design the instrumentation essential to IRSN in the field of environmental radioactivity monitoring and crisis management.
