The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

More radiation in Europes skies in “recent weeks”

 

A cloud of radioactive pollution over Europe in recent weeks indicates that an accident has happened in a nuclear facility in Russia or Kazakhstan in the last week of September, French nuclear safety institute IRSN said on Thursday.

The IRSN ruled out an accident in a nuclear reactor, saying it was likely to be in a nuclear fuel treatment site or centre for radioactive medicine. There has been no impact on human health or the environment in Europe, the IRSN said.

IRSN, the technical arm of French nuclear regulator ASN, said in a statement it could not pinpoint the location of the release of radioactive material but that based on weather patterns, the most plausible zone lay south of the Ural mountains, between the Urals and the Volga river.

This could indicate Russia or possibly Kazakhstan, an IRSN official said.


Note; Looking over EURDEP radiation mapping i could only find a few high peaks in Greece (Data points stop after 28th October) and Macedonia. There was also some missing data points found near the Chernobyl disaster site. These are similar geographically to past releases from Europes IAEA Isotope medical reactor in located in Hungary. The IAEA tried to blame Pakistan then Japan for the release in 2011.
