Court Urged to Halt ‘Illegal’ Smelter

Earthlife Africa asks the Gauteng High Court to halt smelting operations at the NECSA Pelindaba plant on the grounds that they were illegal

The environmental activist grouping, Earthlife Africa, had asked the Gauteng High Court to halt smelting operations at the Nuclear Energy Corporation of South Africa (NECSA) Pelindaba plant on the grounds that they were illegal.

The organisation, which wants the smelter to shut down, argues that the possibility exists that it could be turned to commercial use which would result in South Africa becoming ‘a nuclear waste junkyard’.

Earthlife Africa has been in a decade-long dispute over the smelter which was constructed to decontaminate radio-active metal by smelting and mixing it with scrap metal.
