Abstract

The natural radioactivity of coal-slag and ash from the vicinity of city Ajka (Transdanubian Middle Mountain) significantly exceeds the world average one. The use of the slags and ashes as building material gives a remarkable dose contribution due to elevated radon emanation and external gamma-radiation. Therefore the materials are to be qualified and regulated by indices calculated from their radionuclide concentration and compared them to the proper derived levels. From the gamma-spectrometric analysis of samples taken from houses around Ajka, it can be stated that most of them they must not have been used neither as building material nor for any other purposes in the building industry. Despite the early national prohibition, which was vaguely known in public and had inefficient control, the materials with elevated radioactivities were used mainly for private buildings. We consider to be important the immediate control and qualified using such materials and an efficient way of informing the public.
