 final“Use of by-products in construction: dealing with natural radioactivity”

FINAL Symposium COST NETWORK “NORM4Building”

This symposium is open for COST and non-COST participants

Dates: 06-08th of June 2017




Since January 2014 we have launched the European COST network ‘NORM4Building’ for the use of by-products, from industrial sectors that process naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORMs), in newly developed construction materials.

Our network that contains more than 120 experts from 30 European countries takes a holistic approach in developing new reuse pathways involving experts on different (technical, chemical, physical, ecological, economical, radiological,…) aspects of the materials. The COST Action also studies the impact of new European legislation such as the Euratom Basic Safety Standards on the newly developed reuse options.
