Reports: Italian police seize 10,000 tons of radioactive biomass fuel imported from Lithuania


www.dailypress.com

Police across Italy have seized 10,000 tons of wood fuel pellets contaminated by a radioactive substance, news reports said Sunday.

The fuel seized Saturday had been imported from Lithuania in the fall and was found to contain caesium-137, a highly toxic isotope whose radiation can cause serious health problems, including various types of cancer.

Seems like someone is trying to wipe out the Italians. I wonder why there is no mention of possible terrorist involvement. Lets face it, today your first considered that before anything else.

But then again anything out of Lithuania is considered dangerous, even the women are deadly good looking.

Well at least we know the Italians know how to stop things from coming into their country.

I'm going to keep an eye on this. I wonder who sent these?

How could biomass be contaminated with radioactive biomass? Like, did it come from Chernobyl or was it stored or purposely contaminated with radioactive materials?

The topic title immediately caught my attention, because i'm from Lithuania. What's strange is that i haven't heard any mention of this incident in the media, could have missed it on TV, but there's no mention of it in the Lithuanian web for sure. Maybe we'll hear about it soon.

I can assure though, that lithuanians have no grudges against italians
(unless you've beaten us at some sport even recently)

So i'll keep my eye on this, and i'll report if i hear anything at our news sources about this.

P.S. Thanks for the compliment on our ladies, tristar

Ceasium isnt really thats impressive as far as radioactivity goes. Sounds like a mix up.

Very creepy article indeed! The information is still a little vague but that is a lot radioactive material and serious health concern. The article says the material originated in Lithuania, and if that is case, how come there is no shipping manifest present with the material. Apparently it was being shipped somewhere maybe the order got crossed? I'm just speculating but I think it is to early to start claiming it is a terrorist act.

It may be material sold on the black market because the Russian Mafia is involved in shipping fuels, alcohol, weapons, and other things illegally. To me it may have been an illegal shipment that didn't arrive to it's intended destination. Where ever that is I have no clue?

There's some Lithuanian coverage of the event today, and basically it said, that there is a possibility some areas in Lithuania might still have some caesium contamination from the Chernobyl disaster, but the amounts are very small and within the norms of EU. So if Caesium levels are as high as Italians report then the wood must've come from countries such as Belarus, Ukraine or Russia, which received more contamination from the Chernobyl disaster.

So maybe the wood came from multiple sources from different countries to Lithuania and then was sold to Italy, i don't know just speculating..

The problem is, that all E.U. imports or exports must have meters which count radioactive isotopes amongst other readings. It is obvious that something is happening, but no one is really touching the subject.
