Germany to Resume Nuke Fuel Shipments to BNFL

LCG, Jan. 23, 2001Germany's Federal Office of Radiation Protection said yesterday it has authorized resumption of shipments of spent nuclear fuel to a reprocessing plant owned by British Nuclear Fuels Ltd.

The shipment to BNFL's Sellafield plant were halted in May 1998 after containers were found to leak more than the allowable amount of radiation, and new shipments will be made on the condition that international safety standards are strictly adhered to, said Wolfram Knig, chief of the radiation agency.
Shipments of spent fuel to a French reprocessing plant were resumed last September.

Germany's anti-nuke activists, who have frequently tried to disrupt movement of radioactive material, see the resumption of the shipments to Sellafield, which makes useable nuclear fuel out of spent fuel, as a weakening of Germany's resolve to shut down all of its nuclear reactors.

Fritz Kuhn, a member of the minority Greens party of Gerhard Schrder's coalition government, urged protesters not to interfere with plans to bring nuclear waste back to Germany from the French reprocessing plant in March.
