Contamination by actinides and fission products is an important issue in many countries for their Environmental impact and Human protection. For instance, the disposal of legacy wastes and the decontamination of polluted soils have been a central issue in the US DOE sites such as the Hanford site. In Japan, the decontamination of environments polluted, mostly radioactive cesium, and the management and the disposal of excavated soils are emerging problems after the accident of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. In France the major public health challenges and environmental issues as well as the potential release of anthropogenic radionuclides from repository sites in environment for the wastes management are strongly examined. Various decontamination strategies have been developed in general, including excavation, chemical leaching, bio-remediation, and phyto-remediation.

This international workshop gives the progress on environmental survey, notably at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, the decontamination of soils by phyto-,bio-remediation, and on Clean-Up science. Speakers from Japan, USA, Germany and France will participate during these 2-dates workshop at Subatech in Nantes (France).

This workshop is prepared jointly with Subatech (France, and Advanced Science Research Center of the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (ASRC/JAEA) (Japan, in the framework of REIMEI research program 2015-2016.
