  • NORMs contamination treatment using Ivey-sol technology

    NORMs (naturally occurring radioactive materials) are found almost everywhere, and many natural materials, such as the earth’s crust, contain such radioactive materials. So what happens when oil and gas activities such as petroleum refining and natural gas extraction, disturb such radioactive material? They can alter the natural background radiation — the radiation that we are naturally exposed ...
