Australian news, and some related international items

Australian government grossly inflates the number of jobs to be needed at planned South Australian nuclear waste dump

Paul Edwards Fight To Stop Nuclear Waste Dump In Flinders Ranges SA, 5 Oct 18  The Centre de Stockage de l’Aube (CSA) radioactive waste facility in France handles over 200 times more waste per year compared to the proposed facility in SA yet it employs only four times as many staff as the proposed facility in SA. CSA processes 73 cubic metres (m3) per employee per year (13,164 m3 / 180 staff).

The El Cabril radioactive waste facility in Spain has a staff of 137 people and processed an average of 1,395 m3 per year from 1993 to 2016. That equates to 10.2 m3 per employee per year.

Yet the Australian government estimates a workforce of 45 people to process 45 m3 per year: 1 m3 per employee per year compared to 10.2 in Spain and 73 in France. The government evidently has a dim view of the productivity of Australian workers, or, more likely, its jobs estimate is grossly inflated. SO there are other sites that would be happy to have the containated waste …………..DO NOT allow the Flinders Ranges SA to become another FUKUSHIMA………Nearly one million tons of water from the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant is still dangerously radioactive, according to Tokyo Electric Power…….PLEASE  Fight To Stop Nuclear Waste Dump In Flinders Ranges SA
