Pollutions and Traffics

Les déchets produits en Europe et aux Etats-Unis et exportés par voie maritime dans des pays incapables de les stocker ont tracé la ligne directrice de Robin des Bois sur la gestion des déchets : proximité, responsabilité et solidarité. En vertu de ces trois principes, Robin des Bois ne s’oppose pas systématiquement à l’ouverture de lieux de stockage ou de traitement des déchets. Aujourd’hui, le trafic de déchets s’organise autour de directives européennes et de conventions internationales statiques, faciles à détourner et à interprétations multiples. Les déchets électroniques et d’autres ex-produits de consommation et de bien être « à recycler » prennent la fuite.

Stocamine* and Cigéo** in the Same Boat

11 Mar 2014

*Stocamine at Wittelsheim near Mulhouse was a center for deep Storage- 550 meters- for non-recyclable and non-radioactive toxic waste in a salt bed. Between February 1999 and September 2002, 44,000 tons of waste has been stored there.

** Cigéo is at the borders of the Meuse and Haute-Marne is an in depth storage project – 500 meters – for non-recyclable radioactive waste in a layer of clay.

In 1997, the prefectural authorization for Stocamine included a 30-year operation and demanded removal of the after that term except in case of an authorization renewal. Reversibility was accompanied by technical and financial provisions ensuring, at any time, the withdrawal of all or some of the waste.

The end of the Probo Koala

The Hua Wen, ex-Probo Koala is going to be demolished in the coming weeks in China. From August 2006 on, the scattering in Abidjan of desulphurization waste containing mercaptan and hydrogen sulphide has provoked a panic and the paralysis of Ivory Coast business capital. 16 fatalities were officially reported; the victims had been exposed to the toxic emanations. The toxic and stinky waste which had been unloaded from the Probo Koala slop tanks had illegally left Amsterdam and Tallinn, two North European ports (1).
