The objective of this book is to present a comprehensive picture,
first of the fundamentals of general contamination of solid
surfaces and water, and in the second part, to review the main
practical procedures and means of applied decontamination used in
the fields of activity. The most emphasis on radioactive
contamination deals with decontamination of the operational
facilities in nuclear power plants. Other special decontamination
branches of current interest are also dealt with briefly.
The art of decontamination is being enriched by the progress
achieved in relevant scientific disciplines and employs these
relative advances. The current volume discusses in detail the
following trends in decontamination: Firstly, the development and
use of new decontamination methods that are highly efficient,
non-agressive to decontaminated materials, and economically
feasible; secondly, the utilization of progressive elements of
automation and robotics; thirdly, the development and use of such
decontamination formulations that would minimize the volume of
wastes and would produce wastes in a form in which they could be
either easily further treated or safely disposed of without risk to
human health or the environment; finally, the choice of suitable
materials used both for the structural and the technological parts
of nuclear installations with regard to their minimal
contaminability and ease of decontamination.
