The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

New UHI research into tiny fragments of radioactivewaste flushed into the sea from Dounreay nuclear power plant 40 years ago.

 New UHI research is to be carried out into tiny fragments of radioactive
waste flushed into the sea from Dounreay nuclear power plant 40 years ago.
Sand-sized particles of irradiated nuclear fuel got into the plant’s
drainage system in the 1960s and 1970s. Work to clean up the particles
began in the 1980s, after fragments were found washed up on the nearby
foreshore. Dounreay’s operator is funding the research by the University
of the Highlands and Islands (UHI). The UHI environmental research
institute in Thurso, near Dounreay, said the research would “explore a
difficult environmental problem”.
