SUMMRY:
The article presents the analysis of main directions of the application of radiocarbon studies in Ukraine for various ecological tasks: CO2 emissions both nuclear power plants and thermal power plants, spatial distribution of CO2 due to transport emissions, radioactive graphite and environment, balance of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. The studies referred to the operation and emergency conditions of nuclear energy facilities, various directions, and the application of appropriate methodological developments. There is a short information on the main results, problems, and prospects. A prominence has been given some theoretical and methodological issues.

KEYWORDS:
ecology, radiocarbon, 14C, NPP, TPP, transport, CO2 emissions, fossil fuel
