Internal radiation exposure from TENORM for workers conducting cleaning activities on equipment used at geothermal energy plant.

Geothermal energy is expected to be one of the most prevalent renewable energy sources in the near future, according to Geothermal energy. The annual internal dose for the employees wearing protective clothing as a result of the cleaning process's removal of scale, which was determined as 323 bcSv/y. The additional dose for the cleaning staff was less than the dose limit for radiation workers, and less than for the general population recommended by the International Commission on Radiological Protection. However, the increased inhalation dose for workers doing cleaning duties could pose a health risk to workers if they work with unnecessary TENORM-containing tenorm, work for long stretches, or are in violation of outdated safety legislation.
