Overall objective of the project:
Restoring the ecological balance and maintaining the territories affected by the radioactive pollution in the economic activities by means of mitigation, adaptation and restoration of the environmental factors.
Specific objectives / milestones:
Stage I (achieved) – Identify environmental problems and capitalize on existing data on the impact of anthropogenic radioactive sources on areas with tourism potential and the design of the database.
Stage II (achieved) – Outlining the anomalous areas in terms of radiotoxicity in tourist or protected areas and highlighting the level of pollution by qualitative and quantitative determinations.
Stage III (ongoing) – Radiological safety analysis in risk areas resulting in ways to eliminate and mitigate impact objects.
Stage IV (ongoing) – Managing the radiological risk situation in the case of a proposed mining objective for closure according to an integrated environmental management system designed to solve the land use conflict.
Step Five – A strategy for managing the radiological risk associated with the front end of the natural uranium cycle.
§ defining the concept of geographic landscape and the relationships between its concessions.
§ identifying radioactive sources and their distribution on the territory of Romania.
§ Developing the risk assessment concept in consensus with the methodology used worldwide, adapted to the specific conditions and requirements of Romania.
§ elaborating the methodology for collecting, storing and processing the information accumulated in a unitary database system.
§ Identification of environmental problems in areas with anthropogenic radioactive sources and delimitation of anthropic geosystems with major functional imbalances.
