Radioactivity in sewage sludge - evaluation of the current state of research state of research with the integration of measurement data from the IMIS database

In the environmental field of sewage sludge, new scientific knowledge has developed in the last 20 years that, due to resource constraints, could hardly be taken into account in the implementation of tasks so far. Thus, the current national and international status with regard to the consideration of radioactivity in sewage sludge is to be comprehensively researched and reflected.

The project is a complex task that requires detailed knowledge from the reactor accidents in Chernobyl and Fukushima, effects of nuclear medicine activities and laboratory and modelling work.
