Military experts to incinerate chemical on the Sellafield site

SHARE:

Sellafield Ltd have given an update regarding chemicals that are being dealt with by the Explosive Ordinance Team who are on the site. 

A spokesperson said:

"As previously communicated, we are currently working with the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) team on the Sellafield site to dispose of a small quantity of organic peroxide chemical stored in our Magnox Reprocessing Plant.

"The organic peroxide, a chemical used routinely in industry, has been in safe storage, as part of our programme to identify and dispose of historic chemicals on site. During a routine investigation we noted that the chemical had changed state.

"The plan, as advised by EOD, is to burn the chemicals in a prepared incineration pit on a part of the site away from any buildings or infrastructure.

"The incineration process may be visible and audible on and off the site. We expect this process to be completed by late afternoon today.

"Other operations on the site are progressing as normal.

"As ever, our priority remains the protection of our workforce, community and the environment."
