Powerful greenhouse gases emitted from Hunterston A nuclear station

THE release of a refrigerant gas during the ongoing decommissioning of Hunterston A has been revealed at a recent nuclear summit.

Hunterston ‘A’ bosses reported two environmental incidents at the station during its decommissioning phase linked to their air conditioning units. Earlier this year, the release of fluorinated gases was noticed.

These are powerful man-made gases that can stay in the atmosphere for centuries and contribute
to a global greenhouse effect. The incidents formed part of a report to the recent Hunterston site stakeholders meeting.
