Comments on: Lithuania taps up Commission for more nuclear decommissioning funds https://www.euractiv.com/section/energy/news/lithuania-taps-up-commission-for-more-nuclear-decommissioning-funds/ EU news and policy debates across languages Tue, 28 Aug 2018 21:27:57 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.5 By: Peter Fletcher https://www.euractiv.com/section/energy/news/lithuania-taps-up-commission-for-more-nuclear-decommissioning-funds/#comment-331496 Thu, 09 Nov 2017 12:22:06 +0000 https://www.euractiv.com/?post_type=news&p=1189906#comment-331496 As the article states this is in the interests of the entire EU to get this sorted as a major project and is indeed a learning curve for future decommissions which Lithuania could well benefit from later.

Ostracising countries that have problems like this could possibly resort to less safe and cheaper alternative conduct afterwards with the possible negative safety aspect that would entail long term.

Radiation knows no boundaries so it is not something that you can bury your head in the sand with just because you do not live in that particular country which is decommissioning NPPs.

At the end of the day it is in everyone’s interest to get this problem sorted and sorted safely; one of the consequences of the nuclear age I’m afraid.

Those countries could start paying heed to EU values.
Otherwise the door should be opened for Lithuania, Poland and Spain to leave.
