How radioactive is the waste we got back from France? From the Greenpeace investigation we know it is 1.1Giga Becquerels per gram. To put it more simply, the waste from France is:

44,000 times more radioactive than the Uranium Yellowcake we export

13,750,000 times more radioactive than typical Olympic Dam ore

(Yellowcake = 25,000 Bq/g, Olympic Dam ore = 80 Bq/g)
