The Croatian government this week backtracked on a controversial decision to store all of the country’s low- and medium-level nuclear waste at a major research institute in the heart of its capital, Zagreb. The plan had been denounced by the director of the facility, the Ruđer Bošković Institute, and on Monday, Croatia’s Ministry of Science, Education and Sports issued a statement saying the institute “was not an adequate place to store the waste permanently.” But the ministry stills wants to store the nuclear waste at the Zagreb site for an indefinite period until a permanent storage site is readied.
