Kurion was founded by Lux to solve the problems of nuclear waste. Kurion was the only U.S. company selected to participate in the cleanup of the Fukushima disaster. Kurion was acquired by Veolia in 2016.
Born with a contrarian view, Lux founded and funded Kurion alongside a team of extraordinary industry talent to solve the single biggest known—but neglected problem—in energy and environment. Just one year after Lux led the company's seed financing, Kurion won a transformative contract from TEPCO to use its advanced technology for the Fukushima nuclear plant cleanup. The Kurion system has been successfully working to remove more than 99% of the radioactivity from contaminated water, helping to avert a nuclear meltdown.
