The Super Kamiokande-Gadolinium (SK-Gd) project is the upgrade of the Super-Kamiokande (SK) detector in order to discover Supernova Relic Neutrinos (SRNs) by loading 0.2% of Gd$_2$(SO$_4$)$_3$ into a 50 kton of the SK water tank. In order to continue solar neutrino measurement with low energy threshold at $\sim$3.5 MeV, radioactive isotopes (RI) should be reduced before loading.
In this talk, the methods to measure RI in Gd$_2$(SO$_4$)$_3$ and the current status of RI background reduction will be presented.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
