Abstract

The objectives of this study were to determine the natural radioactivity concentrations (226Ra, 228Ra and 40K) in soil, water and plant due to the application of Condisoil®, soil-to-plant transfer factor and radiological hazard index due to the application of Condisoil®. A total of 4 soils, 14 waters and 4 plants samples have been analysed using gamma spectrometry system. The results showed that the activity concentrations of 226Ra, 228Ra and 40K in soils treated with Condisoil® ranged from 13.8 - 17.6, 15.7 - 21.0 and 44.5 - 57.7 Bq kg-1, respectively. The activity concentrations of 226Ra, 228Ra and 40K in plants ranged from 5.0 - 18.5, 0.1 - 1.5 and 42.7 - 321.8 Bq kg-1, respectively. In addition to that, the activity concentrations of 226Ra, 228Ra and 40K in water was in the ranged of 0.3 - 0.9, 0.3 - 3.9 and 1.4 - 11.6 Bq L-1, respectively. The soil-to-plant transfer factor for 226Ra, 228Ra and 40K were in the ranged of 0.42 - 0.71, 0.01 - 0.08 and 0.85 - 5.34, respectively. The radiological hazard assessment found that the radium equivalent index was lower than the recommended limit of 370 Bq kg-1. Therefore, this study concludes that the application of Condisoil® as soil amelioration does not contribute to the accumulation of natural radionuclide in the environment as well as does not pose a significant radiological risk to human.
