Citizens' initiative environmental protection has been warning of the effects of the THTR in Uentrop since 1976

Residents complain about THTR incident

Comment: The fairy tale of radioactive helium has haunted the media for 30 years - but it's not primarily about the radioactivity of helium - helium was only the medium with which the remains of the broken, radioactive graphite fuel element balls, above all the Graphite dust that was blown out of the reactor into the environment.
Please stop talking about the helium, the truth is an unknown amount of highly hazardous, radioactive graphite dust.
Another aspect of the accident on May 04.05.1986th, XNUMX is related to the cooling medium helium. Due to the open, stuck valve and the decision of the surgeon to use the radioactive helium from the primary cooling circuit of the reactor for purging in addition to the non-radioactive purge gas helium, the helium was able to flow out of the primary cooling circuit. The cooling of the reactor was therefore no longer ensured. The reactor could possibly have overheated dangerously.
