Radon Sessions Included in International Symposium on Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material in Denver

The Ninth International Symposium on Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM IX) will be held in Denver, Colorado, September 22 – 27, 2019. On Wednesday, September 25, Radon/Thoron will be the topic of afternoon sessions. See the agenda at https://www.crcpd.org/mpage/NORMIX

CRCPD, in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency, is organizing the Symposium, which will include presentations, posters, training and roundtable sessions from industry representatives, scientists, regulators and other stakeholders. Representatives from over 50 countries plan to attend.

The NORM IX Symposium will address a broad spectrum of issues related to radioactivity in industrial wastes, including controlling radiation exposures to the public and workers, waste management approaches, liabilities arising from mismanagement in oil and gas exploration and production, rare earth and other mineral production, water/wastewater treatment, coal ash, and phosphogypsum production. On Wednesday, the 25th, CRCPD will host a workshop on NORM in the oil and gas industry.

Unlike radioactivity from the nuclear fuel cycle that is highly regulated, management of NORM is not comprehensively regulated at the federal level, making this a topic of particular interest to state regulators and radiation safety professionals.
