Managing Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM) in Industry

The extractive and processing industries manage the raw materials we need to build and run our modern world. These industries provide, refine and dispose of vast quantities of natural and processed materials every year. As a result, they have to deal with the small amounts of radioactive material that are naturally present on our planet. If not carefully managed, these natural radionuclides can lead to exposure of workers or contamination of the environment.
