 Director
Emlen V. Sobotovich,
NAS academician

Founded on January 4, 1996.

Fundamental and applied research is carried out in the following areas:

- geochemistry and cosmochemistry;

- sources of raw materials for nuclear energy;

- management of industrial and domestic waste;

- technogenic and environmental safety, civilian defence.

Principal achievements and developments of the Institute are:

- Environmental risks due to the impacts of Chornobyl accident have been assessed and strategic decisions towards further mitigation of their environment damage proposed.

- Mechanisms for decontaminating man-made and natural objects, mechanisms of ecosystems' self-purification, forecasting models of radioecological situation on polluted territories have been determined.

- Potential radiological hazards of radioactive waste concentrated in Chornobyl exclusion zone have been estimated and strategic decisions concerning hazards minimization proposed.

- Potential suitable areas and geological formations have been identified for the burial of short-lived radioactive waste in surface depots and long-lived radioactive waste in underground geological depots.

- An integrated program has been developed for radioactive waste management in the period of Chornobyl NPP decommissioning and tranforming the 'Ukryttia' ('Shelter') facility into an environmentally appropriate system.

- Geochemical processes that control the rate of natural decontamination of the environment have been identified and evolution dynamics of radioactive environment after major nuclear accidents determined.

- The evolution of uranium ore formation in the Precambrian period of the Ukrainian Shield has been investigated and the possibility of discovering high-grade and complex uranium ores on its territory substantiated;

- New types of cosmic matter have been discovered and studied.

- Screener automated system for spectromenry of human internal radiation has been developed and patented in Ukraine.

- A vehicle-borne aerogramme complex for remote radiation monitoring has been developed and used in ecological monitoring;

- "PRS-Vector" portable workstation for integrated environment monitoring has been developed and patented in Ukraine.
