Nuclear Fuel Services in Erwin Renewed for Another 25 Years
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has renewed the license for Nuclear Fuel Services in Erwin for another 25 years. They make nuclear reactor fuel for the U.S. government. Nuclear regulatory officials say their equipment, facilities and procedures are good enough to protect health and minimize danger to life and property. Safety at the plant became a concern after an inspection resulted in a voluntarily shut down of all production line in late December of 2009. All lines have since been re-started but critic’s question the regulatory authority’s desire to protect the public's health and welfare and accuses the company of polluting the environment with Plutonium. The commission defends the company stating that the plant has been in operation for more than 50 years and continues to improve safety. (bg)
