Managing Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM)

    In their latest eBook, GeoEnergy Consult outlines how the company is supporting NORM-affected mining and processing projects to get permitted and efficiently operate.

    Many mining projects for uranium, rare earths or others are affected by Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM), and this material must be managed appropriately. Mining and processing of those metals can lead to a build-up of NORM residues, which need to be disposed of compliantly and safely.

    GeoEnergy Consult is supporting projects that are affected by NORM, as requirements for managing these materials become ever stricter. Projects must overcome the common challenges associated with NORM, such as the prevention of liability risks and avoidance of site contamination.

    The company helps NORM-affected projects to get permitted and efficiently operate and provides specific advice throughout the life cycle of a NORM-affected operation.

    Solutions for managing Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material

    Several projects that have been affected by Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material did not receive the necessary permits because they failed to show that they were capable of coping with fundamental requirements. GeoEnergy Consult not only provides consultancy advice but also can support the engineering and realisation of projects. According to customer needs, the company customises its solutions tailored to NORM management.

    This eBook delves into GeoEnergy Consult’s expertise and presents a variety of examples from the company’s portfolio, including:

    • Environmental monitoring of NORM-affected mining and processing;
    • Processing and disposal of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material residues; and
    • Decommissioning and remediation of NORM-affected mining and processing.
