Scientists of the V.I. Vernadskii Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine developed a method of electrochemical removal of radionuclide contamination from the surfaces of the technological equipment of nuclear power plants. The method was successfully tested at the Chornobyl nuclear power plant and on the Research Nuclear Reactor of the Institute of Nuclear Research of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. Based on the results of the tests, a device for the electrochemical decontamination of metal surfaces of equipment in non-stationary conditions was created and design and technological documentation for its serial production was developed.
