Radioactive waste hotspots and transboundary pollution in Central Asia’s Ferghana Valley

Year: 2006
From collection: Vital Waste Graphics 2
Author: Emmanuelle Bournay
Description:
The Soviet Union used the Ferghana Valley as one of its main sources of metal and uranium ore. The area has many nuclear waste storage sites, abandoned uranium mines with poorly secured tailing dams and nuclear reactors that pose a severe security hazard. Tailings are exposed to wind erosion and easily accessible to grazing animals.
