ACT NOW

Lifetime extension and power upgrade is much discussed for old NPPs. Some owners have done it (Finland) other are planning it now. Hungary has started a licensing process for lifetime extension of Paks NPP.
Plant lifetime extension is not that costly and it is faster than the planning and construction of a new NPP.

Oppose the plans for lifetime extension of NPPs!

ACT NOW

There is an environmental impact assessment process going on in Hungary, about the lifetime extension of Paks nuclear power plant. Nuclear projects are listed in the Appendix of Espoo Convention, therefore there is a possibility for foreign countries to take part in the Hungarian EIA process. Paks has failed to notify any neighbouring or possibly effected countries about this process, saying, that this project will not have transboundary impacts. However, all neighbouring countries, can take part in the EIA process, they have the right to do this. They have to indicate their intentions to participate to the Hungarian government, based on the accident risk, which will be the higher the longer the plant is running.

Hungary does not want any countries to be involved in this process, but we do. Read more here:
