ANSTO’s duplicity on what is or is not “High Level” nuclear waste

Paul Waldon  Fight To Stop Nuclear Waste Dump In Flinders Ranges SA, 9 Jan 19
The laws of physics dictates that Lucas Heights will remain a “high grade” nuclear waste dump up to ten years after the shutdown of their last reactor. So keep the waste there, Australia doesn’t need two high grade radioactive dump sites.

Anthony Clark Isn’t High Grade reclassified to Intermediate radiation, in order to calm the multitude?

Gary See Anthony Clark As far as I understand it, High Level material generated at Lucas Heights is simply called ‘spent fuel rods’ and not called waste at all as to avoid using the term ‘high level waste’.

After this stuff is sent overseas for ‘processing’ it returns as ‘waste’.

So either they have to be honest about high level waste being generated in Australia or accept that Australia is accepting waste that is generated overseas.

If it isn’t called waste when it leaves Australia and is called waste when it returns, it’s hard to argue that it isn’t ‘waste generated overseas’.

Jillian Marsh to lull the uneducated into thinking ‘its just hospital grade waste and quite harmless’ and to justify government endorsement of a plan to turn our country into the world’s dumping ground …. Happy New Year? i think not if that’s what the people of this nation are supporting. absolutely crazy
