In 2019, DIAL Ltd. signed a contract with Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski" under a special project, according to the Maritime and Fisheries Program - "Ecology and behavior of cetacean mammals - an indicator of the state of the marine environment and a prerequisite for sustainable development". The project is associated with a investigation of the Black Sea, as a highly vulnerable ecosystem from pollution, construction, animals and others, which has a strong impact on coastal and territorial waters. The Black Sea is home to three subspecies of cetacean mammals unique to this ecosystem - harbour porpoise, Common dolphin and Common bottlenose dolphin. They are found only here and have a high conservation status. As they stand at the top of the food chain, these subspecies are a good indicator of marine ecosystem demand. The search will examine the presence and accumulation of eight elements - lead (Pb), cadmium (Cd), zinc (Zn), copper (Cu), nickel (Ni), arsenic (As), aluminum (Al) and mercury (Hg ) in the tissues and organs of the three species of cetaceans distributed in the Black Sea, as well as in Black Sea waters.
In 2020, the company signed a contract with the Regional Inspectorate for the Environment and Water - Varna for the implementation of activities under the project "Activities to improve the condition of wetlands in Durankulak Lake and Shable Lake", financed by the Environment Program. The activities of the project include the study of the waters of Durankulashko and Shablensko lakes according to chemical parameters.
In 2021, as part of the team of the project with "Bulgarian Academy of Innovation Technologies", under the Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Program, DIAL Ltd. has a contract for the analysis of heavy metals from aquatic ecosystems, in connection with the project "Assessment of white sand mussels of the species Donax trunculus and Chamelea gallina as an important bioindicator and resource in the Black Sea ecosystem".
We are proud to say that DIAL Ltd. has produced over 70 environmental studies and projects, including:
Over 30 hydrological and radiological assessments and forecasts for the state of the waste water treatment plants and the technological sites of major uranium mining sites. The evaluation of the radiation parameters and the forecast for potential and real danger for the environment and the population was done according to a complex methodology, taking into account the requirements of the approved instruction for termination of uranium mining.
More than 20 reports on tasks in the field of exploratory work in radionuclide-contaminated agricultural lands.
Dozens of projects on the construction of a network for complex monitoring of the environment in the regions of the sections of Geostroykomplekt – Ltd. and Trakia - RM - Ltd.
Feasibility studies for ecological clean-up of the Asenovgrad reloading base and Rodopi NP Lipetz - Bublon to Rare metals - Ltd.
In 2019, DIAL Ltd. started a project with Kozloduy NPP for "Radiological characterization of solid radioactive wastes that are candidates for exemption from regulation”
DIAL Ltd. works with HPC CHARESS PICKEL CONSULT Germany and AQUATEST - Czech Republic under project B5-98-036 Management and purification of groundwater and surface waters contaminated by radionuclides as a result of uranium mining and uranium processing in the Buhovo region, which is part of the International Environment Program - Concepts for the rehabilitation of uranium mining sites in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
Since the beginning of 2018, DIAL Ltd. has started projects for monitoring of environmental parameters before the construction of a radioactive waste disposal site "Radiana", financed by EBRD. The radiological project is " Predisposal radiological monitoring of Radiana site during construction of national disposal facility phase 1, R-PROJECT 3F-A”
Hydrogeological – “Predisposal Hydrogeological Monitoring of Radiana Site and Geochemical analysis during construction of NDF Phase”
DIAL Ltd. continues to carry out analyzes of the radiological and chemical indicators of drinking water samples from a large number of water and sewage companies throughout Bulgaria.
So far, the DIAL has always carried out and continues to perform laboratory analyzes of samples from monitoring activities in closed uranium mining sites.
From the beginning of March 2018, DIAL Ltd. started a project for monitoring of environmental parameters before the construction of a National Storage Facility for Low and Medium Radioactive Waste - Radiana, located on the territory of Kozloduy NPP. The project is financed by EBRD.
In 2018, for the fifth consecutive year, DIAL Ltd. continues to perform services related to dismantling and releasing from control of equipment in Unit 1-4 of Kozloduy NPP.
In 2018. DIAL Ltd continues to carry out the radiation and dosimetry control of the IZOZURV in Chora, ISRZUR, Uskra and the TMF Metallurg TMF TMF. During 2017.
DIAL completed a joint project with the NCRRP for the preparation of a Radon map of Bulgaria.
DIAL Ltd. also participates in Phare Projects.
Some of the most important PHARE projects completed between 2005 and 2010 are for the development of Bulgarian legislation in the field of NORM and TENORM; for the supply of equipment for quality management of the Arda River; for regional monitoring in southern Bulgaria.
In 2002, - 2005 DIAL participated in the work on two Phare projects, supervising the uranium mining activities in Eleshnitsa and Dospat - BG 9904.03.01.01 and BG 9904.03.01.03 basic radiation monitoring in Southern Bulgaria.
The laboratory also participates in International Projects.
In 2006, DIAL Ltd. worked under a contract of the Ministry of Environment and Water of the Republic of Bulgaria and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) for further study of water quality in rivers from the East Aegean and West Aegean basin regions.
In 2000, - 2001 DIAL Ltd. performed the radiation and dosimetry control during the execution of the works for the technical liquidation of the uranium processing of the PCF Metallurg II phase.
DIAL Ltd. performed the radiation and dosimetry control during the first phase of the technical liquidation of the Metallurg PCF.
