Radioactive contamination is the uncontrolled distribution of radioactive material in a given environment. Radioactive contamination is typically the result of a spill or accident during the production or use of a radionuclide. Dec 04,  · Contamination with radioactive substances. Standardization of experimental methods in studies on contamination and decontamination of solid phase surfaces. Surfaces of solid contaminated materials and sorbents - prevention of contamination and facilitation of Edition: 1. Radioactive contamination of the environment is a global problem arising from generating nuclear power, nuclear accidents, from testing nuclear weapons, and from disposing of nuclear waste. Microorganisms potentially can solubilize and immobilize a wide range of naturally occurring radionuclides, actinides, and fission products. Contamination of land and water by chemical and radioactive materials is a subject that has received widespread media attention and caused much public concern. The processes of lessening the contamination or its impact by removal, treatment, or stabilization of the contaminated materials are called “environmental remediation” or “environmental restoration.”.
