The National Nuclear Laboratory is a UK government-owned, commercially operated nuclear services technology provider covering the whole of the nuclear fuel cycle.

It is fully customer-funded and operates at six locations in the United Kingdom. Its customers have included the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, Sellafield Ltd, Westinghouse, the Health and Safety Executive, the Ministry of Defence, the UK Atomic Energy Authority, VT Nuclear and British Energy. It also has extensive links with academia, including collaborative agreements on waste immobilisation and disposal with the University of Sheffield and on nuclear materials research with the University of Manchester.

The National Nuclear Laboratory Ltd is currently working with the department of Chemical & Process Engineering at the University of Strathclyde to embed hybrid modelling approaches using advanced data-fusion methodologies to process analysis, including scale-up techniques for translation of laboratory experiment based models to manufacturing processes.   

This project is ongoing and being supported by the West of Scotland KTP Centre.
