ANSTO – a loose canon – its costly nuclear quest to be a big exporter of medical isotope

Steve Dale   Fight To Stop Nuclear Waste Dump In Flinders Ranges SA, 19 Nov 18   nuclear waste is many thousands of times more radioactive than the ore we dig up – it’s not like returning a used piece of used chewing gum. We give them dirt and they want to return highly toxic, long lasting poison.

The solution is to stop producing the radioactive waste. Cyclotrons and accelerators will provide medical isotopes with very little or no waste. ANSTO has decided on a path that makes large amounts of wastes so they can chase after an export isotope market. They are a loose cannon that shoots great gobs of toxic nuclear waste.
