Minister of the Environment for Luxembourg Carole Dieschbourg is indignant at a preliminary plan to bury Belgian nuclear waste at the border of the Grand Duchy. Seven sites are targeted, including some in the south of Wallonia, such as La Gaume. It encourages citizens to be heard through a cross-border public consultation. This preliminary draft would consist of landfilling nuclear waste in Belgium, potentially on the Luxembourg border. “A cross-border public consultation has been launched,” said the minister. A new blow, when we know that the French have already chosen the site of Bure, in the Meuse, 150 kilometers from the Grand Duchy.

Belgian authorities have published the draft of a project which seeks to dispose of nuclear waste underground using geological storage. Luxembourg’s Minister of the Environment, Carole Dieschbourg, explained to press that the plan did not seem to take into account the environmental impact on neighbouring countries, such as the Grand Duchy. The government are planning a critical analysis of the plan, and have asked that citizens and local authorities submit their objections to the project prior to 13 June. Links to the Belgian site can be found here.
