From 1 to 19 September this year, joint international radiation monitoring exercises were held in the Chornobyl Exclusion Zone (CEZ) under a project of the German Federal Office for Radiation Protection and State Specialized Enterprise “Ecocenter” with the assistance of the German Embassy in Ukraine. The objective was to prepare an up-to-date map showing the distribution of Cs-137 radiation contamination and predict the nature of its changes.

Aerial inspections of electric overhead lines are a suitable tool to increase their reliability and thus also have an impact on increasing the reliability of the operation of nuclear power plants.

22 Sep 2021 | SSTC NRS

According to the management of the State Scientific and Technical Center for Nuclear and Radiation Safety (SSTC NRS), training and improvement of knowledge and skills are not only current requirements, but also an integral part of daily activity. Being guided by this paradigm, SSTC NRS actively develops the popular work area such as education and training for experts of institutions and organizations acting in the field of nuclear energy and participates in various domestic and international educational projects.

Radioactive waste often has to be encapsulated for long-term storage. Usually, it’s placed in a steel drum that is filled with cement. But now there is a lower cost and more environmentally friendly option: SIAL®, a geopolymer encapsulation technology developed by Jacobs.

30 Aug 2021 | PSI

Switzerland plans to construct an underground repository for its radioactive waste by 2050. Three sites are under consideration. Researchers at PSI are providing data that will help in determining which is most suitable.

Instead of automated sampling for noble gases and analysing stations, manual system can be used to better accommodate costs for the equipment and flexibility of usage. One of this system has been developed by the Traceability Laboratory at the ENEA Research center of Brasimone, which was specially designed in order to keep the sampling equipment separate from the processing and measurement.

30 Aug 2021 | SEC NRS

For the period from 12th to 16th of July 2021, Ural Interregional Territorial Department of  Rostechnadzor for supervision of nuclear and radiation safety carried out an inspection of the completed construction of Cyclotron Centre for Nuclear Medicine with proton accelerator
