ANSTO expans its nuclear activities – Australian tax-payers bear the costs of its nuclear wastes

Steve Dale Nuclear Fuel Cycle Watch South Australia, 12 Aug 18   “ANSTO is expanding nuclear activities, which will mean massive increases in wastes.” – why are countries sending us 45 tonnes of Silicon ingots each year to be irradiated and then sent back overseas?

I have the horrible suspicion that this is another activity the taxpayer subsidises so that ANSTO can justify their reactor. There are other ways of N-doping Silicon. Is Australia again distorting the market using taxpayer funds? Whatever the price ANSTO charges, it is too low to cover the costs of imposing nuclear waste on a community, and a state that is still suffering from the Maralinga abuse.
