An important focus of the research is on the reuse of NORM in construction materials. New cementitious binders (alkali activated materials (AAMs), ettringite binders) were developed for the reuse of NORM. During the research, the radiological and chemical properties of the newly developed cementitious binders are evaluated. This involves gammaspectrometric analysis, leaching analysis and the evaluation of radon exhalation and emanation. For the reuse/management of NORM residues also a techno-economic assessment is performed and perception aspects regarding the reuse of NORM are investigated.
