Clearance levels for the solid materials contaminated with uranium were estimated based on deterministic dose calculation approach for metal reuse scenario. The activity concentrations for major radionuclides, U-234, U-235 and U-238, were calculated to be 1.5Bq/g, 1.4Bq/g and 1.8Bq/g, respectively. In order to confirm the validity of the calculated concentrations, the authors estimated the uncertainties on scenario description after metal recycling and on parameter values used in the deterministic calculation. The validity of the calculated activity concentrations by the deterministic approach was confirmed from the results of both the analysis for an additional scenario on the landfill disposal of residue of slag after metal recycling and the Monte Carlo-based analysis for parameter uncertainties.
