Argonne National Laboratory

Radiation & Chemical Risk Mgmt.
Argonne assists technical problems as diverse as chemically and radiologically contaminated soil, military munitions disposal areas, and groundwater contaminated with carbon tetrachloride.

Argonne's work in radiation and chemical risk management includes the development of information and tools to support decision making based on health, safety, environmental, economic, and socio-cultural risks. As an example, Argonne-developed set of RESRAD codes are the leading methodology approved by the U.S. Department of Energy for evaluation of cleanup guidelines at sites formerly used for nuclear material production.
