France's Veolia forays into nuclear waste cleanup in Japan

Veolia CEO Antoine Frerot talks about the company's plans in Japan in a recent interview with The Nikkei in Paris.

PARIS -- Veolia, the world's leading water treatment company, sees an opportunity to expand in Japan by processing low-level radioactive waste, CEO Antoine Frerot said in a recent interview with The Nikkei.

     Veolia anticipates strong demand in Japan, where a number of nuclear power plants are expected to be decommissioned in the coming years. The company's endeavor will center on newly acquired Kurion, a U.S. business with expertise in treating low-level radioactive waste.
