VeriShield® modular radiation shielding offers several sustainability benefits compared to traditional construction methods and poured concrete solutions. Here’s how:

  • Resource Efficiency: VeriShield radiation shielding modules are always manufactured in a controlled factory environment. This method allows for precise and metered material usage, minimizing waste generation, significantly reducing water consumption, and optimizing resource efficiency while utilizing recycled byproducts from other manufacturers that would otherwise find their place in a landfill.
  • Reduced Construction Time: VeriShield can be manufactured concurrently with site preparation, significantly reducing construction time compared to traditional on-site building methods. This efficiency translates to lower energy consumption, fewer materials used, fewer shipping impacts, and reduced environmental disruption.
  • Reuse and Repurposing: VeriShield components are designed to be easily disassembled and reused in either a decommissioning scenario or relocation. This adaptability allows for the relocation or repurposing of shielding structures, extending their lifespan and reducing the demand for new materials.
  • Space Saved = Less Building Materials: The space savings of VeriShield also reflect that fewer building materials overall will be required for finished shielded space, for example, less drywall, ductwork, ceiling tiles, wiring, etc.
  • Minimized Site Disturbance: With VeriShield, construction requires less on-site labor and equipment than traditional building methods. This reduces site disturbance, minimizing soil erosion, habitat disruption, and other environmental impacts.
  • Scalability and Flexibility: VeriShield can be easily expanded or modified to accommodate changing needs. This scalability reduces the need for new construction projects, conserving resources and minimizing environmental impact.
  • Quality Control: Factory-based manufacturing of VeriShield allows for rigorous quality control measures. Components are manufactured to precise specifications, resulting in higher-quality modules that require fewer repairs and replacements over time.
