TENORM Surveys / Regulatory Compliance Assessment


Fossil fuel (coal) with potential TENORM

Newtech performed an assessment to determine if concentrations of TENORM at a 5 unit fossil fuel plant in Alabama were above the State criteria which would indicate the need for licensing.  Gamma exposure rate, alpha/beta contamination surveys, and sampling of fire brick, ash media and other solids were performed.  Newtech performed evaluation of solid samples to determine Ra-226 and Ra-228 concentration.  Survey and laboratory measurements were compiled, compared with the State TENORM criteria, and summarized in a report to the Client.  The data were used to demonstrate that the levels of TENORM measured during the assessment were below the criteria necessary for licensing.
