Extensive Radon soil measurements in Thuringia start this September

The State Office for the Environment, Mining and Nature Conservation (TLUBN) announces that extensive radon soil measurements will begin in Thuringia this September to track down the carcinogenic radioactive gas. 

In Germany, the federal states are required by law to designate radon precautionary areas and to monitor them regularly. The districts of Greiz and Saalfeld-Rudolstadt are among the precautionary areas in Thuringia. 

Households - which are located in radon precautionary areas - can participate in radon measurements free of charge. So-called exposimeters are sent to the voluntarily participating households with the aim - to place the radon measuring devices in the rooms for one year and thus to determine the radon concentration in the summer and winter months. 

High-quality Radon Exposimeters are also available from us in the Radon Shop!
