Sustainability: together we can achieve better solutions
Many industrial activities process raw materials containing naturally occurring radioactivity. Such activities include for instance mining of ores, production of coal, oil and gas, or industrial minerals, such as phosphate or clay.
This may give rise to environmental pollution and the need to take remediation actions to mitigate potential risks.
To be considered sustainable, a remediation project should take into account not only the environmental and economic aspects, but also the social ones (health, culture, social relations, sense of belonging…). At SCK CEN we conduct research to show how societal priorities, values and concerns can be included into decisions regarding site remediation.
