Russia Created Complex to Work in Chemical Contamination Area
The prototype of mobile system that allows simultaneous control of chemical and radiation conditions in the areas of emergencies was developed in the framework of the federal target program “National system of chemical and biological security of the Russian Federation (years 2009 – 2014)”.
According to the program, nowadays the territory of the Russian Federation accumulated nearly 2 billion tons of toxic waste. The special danger for the environment is constituted by waste of electroplating industry, as well as waste containing mercury and organic chlorine.
“The mobile complex of expert evaluation and monitoring of radiation and chemical environment in emergency zones “Expert-ChS-RKh” has been designed, manufactured, and passed into trial operation by the results of state tests,” was said in a statement of the Russian Emergencies Ministry.
