Meet the Decontamination and Decommissioning Specialists
Ameriphysics is a full-service provider of radiological, environmental, and waste solutions. We are committed to finding an economical means to service your needs while maintaining the highest safety and quality standards.
Our technical personnel have an impeccable record of successes in a variety of nuclear and environmental settings. From simple environmental surveys to complex MARSSIM based decommissioning projects, dispositioning of activated cyclotrons to excavation and removal of millions of pounds of contaminated environmental media, Ameriphysics has the experience, resources, and capabilities necessary to complete your project on time, within budget, and in accordance with applicable regulatory standards.
Ameriphysics’ radioactive material license authorizes us to conduct decontamination and decommissioning (D&D), provide transportation services, and implement radiation safety programs. Our corporate office is located in Knoxville, Tennessee; however, our business model allows us to perform these services cost-effectively throughout the U.S. and internationally. Our customers include fortune 500 companies, other commercial organizations, government entities, hospitals, universities, and researchers – literally anyone with a radiological or environmental concern.
While our success is based exclusively on experience, leadership, and financial strength, we are also owned by a Gulf-War era veteran with a service-connected disability. For purposes of federal procurement, we participate as a Center for Veterans Enterprise (CVE) verified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB).
In terms of decontamination and decommissioning services, Ameriphysics employs individuals who are recognized nationally and internationally as leading D&D experts. The combined experience of our technical personnel includes literally hundreds of these projects – most of which were completely planned, implemented, and reported by in-house staff. Ameriphysics’ corporate experience includes two former reactor sites, which speaks to the complexity of projects we are equipped to handle.
With respect to application of the survey methodology described in the Multi-Agency Radiation Survey and Site Investigation Manual (MARSSIM), Ameriphysics is consistently awarded such work where technical approach and adherence to quality and other consensus standards are paramount.
As a result of our successes and contributions in the decontamination and decommissioning field, our personnel are routinely asked to provide training on MARSSIM and other practices that are used during the D&D process. To date, we have trained more than a thousand individuals from 23 countries through workshops and meetings sponsored by Department of Energy, International Atomic Energy Agency, and the Health Physics Society. We are engaged, internationally, in the D&D community; a distinction that separates us from our competitors.
Our services aren’t limited to D&D. We also employ health physicists and other individuals who specialize in waste management, safety, quality, shielding design, auditing, procedure development, and cyclotron removal and relocation. Ameriphysics also maintains a strong environmental presence, with services including remediation, abatement, and cleaning.
