ABSTRACT

The termination of mining and processing of uranium ores lead to
either conservation or liquidation of uranium industry projects in a lot of
countries, including Bulgaria. The liquidation of uranium industry is a
problem of interdisciplinary character where problems of medicine,
dosimetry radiochemistry, radio-physics, management, economics and
engineering interface.
All these topics define the radio-ecological engineering as a part of
ecology divided into two main branches:
- recreation at technogenically elevated background due to artificial
radioisotopes and
- recreation of technogenically induced natural radiation background.
The questions of interaction between the existing biotic and newly
created anthropogenic non-biotic systems are discussed in the paper.
