Marinet submission to EA on Bradwell FED permit applications

We provide here the comments of Marinet, 4th December 2016, to the Environment Agency concerning the application by Magnox Limited to be allowed to discharge waste radioactivity, heavy metals and nitrates into the Blackwater estuary from Bradwell nuclear power station (decommissioned). These wastes arise from the Fuel Element Debris (FED) process whereby metals parts and canisters, originally from the old fuel rods, are being dissolved in nitric acid in order to extract the radioactive materials for further waste management. The comments in the Marinet submission refer to two key documents submitted by Magnox to the Environment Agency. One is their Environmental Risk Assessment, click here. The other is their modelling of the levels of nitrate resulting from the discharges into the estuary, click here.
