Technology of long-term localization of soils contaminated with radioactive and high-toxic substances
[en]The world experience shows that great process accidents lead to hundreds of thousands hectares of surface contamination with high-toxic substances that causes tile areas conversion into active sources of secondary contamination. For example after Chernobyl accident contaminated more then 2000000 ha. territories. Nuclear installation decommissioning can also result in such contamination that can as well be registered at the places where industrial wastes are plied up or stored
