|Abstract:||Naturally occurring radioactivity in the raw materials for metal production may
give rise to small amounts of radioactivity in the final products. Other possible
radioactive sources in metals are recycled scrap from the nuclear industry and
contamination from radiation sources erroneously ending up in recyclable scrap.
A study on radioactivity levels in commercially available metals was performed.
Samples from different steel, aluminium and magnesium producers in Nordic
Countries were analysed. The results from the measurements are presented.|
