NORM Disposal Logistics
Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) is a common waste by-product when extracting materials from the earth, prevalent in the oil & gas, LNG, and mining industries.
This radioactive material (consisting of radium, radon, thorium, and uranium) is often found in pipelines, filter socks, and oily sludges or residues. When NORM concentrations exceed acceptable health & safety levels for workers (common when equipment is refurbished or decommissioned) the material must be managed and disposed of expertly.
