Applied Environmental Consulting, Inc. focuses its expertise in the industrial sector providing the services to a myriad of industry groups. One common thread between several of the groups is the use of fixed industrial gauges that contain radioactive materials. Another commonality is that those clients that mine and technologically-enhance the naturally-occurring radioactive materials (TENORM) from the ground make the disposal of the equipment problematic and under regulatory oversight. For the fixed gauges, AEC provides certified training for the advanced authorized user and authorized user to include inventorying, gauge leak testing, relocation, surveying and all other regulatory requirements of possessing fixed industrial gauges. Those companies that enhance TENORM must undergo the decommissioning of their plants. This requires a complicated process under regulatory guidelines to complete.
