Protecting society from the hazards of legacy nuclear sites
In near future, one of the most significant environ-mental challenges facing EU member states is how to ensure the safe disposal of radioactive waste from decommissioning nuclear sites.
Project provides validated methods for measuring radioactivity on site, for segregating and checking wastes and for monitoring the condition of wastes.
MIKES develops a fully portable automatized laser spectrometer for on-line on-site monitoring of gaseous radiocarbon CO2 and CH4 emissions.
