What is a radioactive pollutant?



  1. 0 Votes

    Radioactive pollution results from the release of radioactive waste into the environment. 

    Radioactive waste is the gaseous, liquid or solid byproduct of many activities and industries that employ the naturally radioactive (which means possessing an unstable nucleus that spontaneously releases energy) element uranium.  The alpha or beta particles, neutrons and gamma rays released by uranium nuclei contaminate other atoms they come in contact with, generating greater amounts of radioactive matter.
