Decontamination of an Uranium facility floor

Solution entered: 2/16/2008    Solution updated: 3/2/2008

I recommend contacting Environmental Alternative Inc (EAI) who sell chemicals that might work. They are sprayed on to the contaminated floor with a foam applicator, scrubbed in with a floor brush, and then vacuumed up. Each application takes less than one hour. The chemical solution sinks into the concrete, gets under the contamination and floats it to the surface. Pacific Eco Solutions had used this process to decontaminate a Pu nitrate spill and had very good results initially. Surveys taken days after the floor was decontaminated revealed more contamination was leaching out of the concrete. Rather than repeat the decon, they pressure washed it and painted with epoxy paint.
