The main purpose of the 2nd Topical Workshop on Low Radioactivity Techniques was to share the knowledge on techniques and developments aimed at ultra-low level backgrounds. Extremely low backgrounds are needed for searches looking for rare events such as dark matter or solar neutrinos. The articles gathered in this proceeding are unique since they provide technical details on low radioactivity techniques developments.So in order to validate the surface radiopurity of the scintillators and also to validate the technique and the level of random coincidence, prototypes are under construction ... The analysis channel was a crossing electron in the wire chamber 1 The averaged deposited energy of an electron from the 212 Bi beta decay calculated with a GEANT4 Monte Carlo is about 50 keV in 100 Jim of plastic scintillator.
