Decontamination - how clean is clean?

FOI has expertise in the decontamination of chemical and radioactive substances both at laboratory scale and at full scale in the field.

For example, FOI carries out evaluation of decontamination agents and decontamination systems. FOI conducts studies to determine what levels of contamination are acceptable and safe, and how long it takes to achieve an adequate level of cleanliness.

In addition to assignments from the Swedish Armed Forces, FOI also participates in a range of EU projects in this field.
