The main objectives of the NATO ASI “Advanced Science and Technology for Biological Decontamination of Sites Affected by Chemical and Radiological Nuclear Agents”, Zhytomyr (Ukraine), August 2005 were training of participants in the science and technology of biological decontamination related to radionuclides and chemical substances, explosives, ammunitions and fuels; and describing and discussing the present state-of-the-art, and the further developments required for commercial applications. These topics are up-to-date in a global context because of increased sensitivity towards environmental problems in many countries. The main output of the school is to set off collaborations of scientists and technicians with state and governmental agencies, with regulators, economists, and evaluators. Viable and successful communication is a priority for factual implementation of decontamination practices.
