About NORM

NORM occurs naturally throughout our environment from the sun and deep space, in our bodies, the food we eat, the places we live and work, and the ground we live on. Certain industrial processes, however, can cause NORM to accumulate at concentrations greater than natural background levels. The petroleum industry is one of several industries that generate large volumes of NORM-bearing wastes. For more information on NORM, see What is NORM?
