Ecolego can be adapted and customised for any specific usage and needs in conducting risk assessments of complex dynamic systems.
Ecolego’s primary use has been in conducting safety and risk assessments in the Nuclear Sector, including safety assessments of nuclear facilities, medical, industrial and research facilities that make peaceful uses of radioisotopes, nuclear legacy sites and radioactive waste management facilities.
Ecolego has been applied to the mining sector when it comes to activities to be implemented at uranium (and other elements) mining and legacy sites. We offer support to clients for implementation of own models specific to the actions of a mine and its remediation.
The contaminated land market can benefit from models including assessment of impacts of chemical or other hazards to the environment. Such models can be developed and included in the Ecolego model library, for instance, for chemical transfer in connection to traditional waste management (landfills, etc.).
Ecolego is a software tool for development of mathematical models of dynamic systems and processes and performing deterministic and probabilistic simulations with the models. The models can consist of analytical expressions, systems of Ordinary Differential Equations (ODE) or a combination of the two. Ecolego includes state-of-the-art numerical solvers for numerical solution of the systems of ODEs. It incorporates an engine for performing probabilistic propagation of parameter uncertainty through the models using Monte Carlo and Latin Hypercube sampling, which can be used for performing uncertainty and sensitivity analyses.
Ecolego is well-established in the international market with customers throughout the world. The following are a few of the projects references to which Ecolego has been applied:
The Ecolego software includes optional specialized toolboxes. We also provide the Ecolego Player, free software that allows the user to browse the model, inspect equations, and re-run simulations.
Ecolego is a powerful and flexible software tool for creating dynamic models and performing deterministic or probabilistic simulations. It can be used for conducting risk assessments of complex dynamic systems evolving over time with any number of species.
The parameter database toolbox provides a connection between Ecolego and a parameter database.
The radionuclide toolbox is a plug-in for Ecolego for modelling of radionuclides. The radionuclide toolbox features a database containing all nuclide isotopes and their decay constants and decay energies.
Ecolego Team provides the following paid services related to the Ecolego.
We offer technical assistance in the fields of environmental risk assessments, simulation modelling, safety assessments in radioactive waste management and radiation protection.
Clients may have specific uses of Ecolego which require an adaptation or special modification to the software. Contracts can be arranged with clients to perform these specific adaptations to meet specific customer demands.Read more about our Services
Individual and group training on Ecolego and use of specific models are offered at a fee. This training offering is in addition to the free online training offered as part of the licensing package. Such training is organized according to specific client requests and can take place at AF offices or at client premises.

This is a simple model to illustrate the capability of Ecolego to be used to perform water balance calculations for the mining industry.
The ‘Sources’ library includes modules for calculation of radionuclides releases to air, surface waters and groundwater from the contaminated object (source-term) such as uranium mill tailings or radioactively contaminated land.
The ‘Cover Layers’ library includes modules for simulating soil covers over the source in order to calculate resulting radon exhalation rate and concentration in air, as well as the external dose rate above the cover.
The ‘Transports’ library includes modules for calculation of the atmospheric, groundwater or surface runoff transport of radionuclides from the contamination source to different receptors.
The ‘Receptors’ library includes modules for calculation of radionuclide transfer and redistribution process in different types of receptor environments.
A set of modules for calculation of doses to humans based on the radionuclide concentrations in different environmental media simulated using the receptor modules.
Our December newsletter with information on updates and special offer for new clients.
Over the past four years, an informal working group has developed to investigate existing sensitivity analysis methods, examine new methods, and identify best practices.
