The development of appropriate green technologies capable of reducing the use and release of pollutants is becoming increasingly important in order to meet improved environmental regulations. The application of radiation technologies has proven to offer many advantages in lessening the environmental impact of processes and in the green development of new products. Examples include industrial effluents and municipal waste treatment materials modification and the sterilization of equipment. This publication presents the proceedings of a technical meeting on the deployment of clean radiation technology for environmental remediation. The meeting provided a forum for presenting recent developments and reviewing global regional and national level initiatives. Papers provided detailed practical experience and lessons learned in the use of radiation technologies for the treatment of environmental pollutants and in the development of new materials and other products. Economic and regulatory issues were addressed. Consideration was also given to future developments and roadmaps for integrating radiation technology with conventional technologies on a larger scale.
