The inventory report supports the allegations that the major part of the radioactivity originates from the nuclear power plant in obrigheim
Calculations by greenpeace based on an inventory report show that a good two-thirds of the radioactivity in the ailing asse II nuclear waste repository is due to commercial power generation. Officially, the power companies admit that they are only responsible for a small part of the stored radiation. The main purpose of the argument is to reduce the billions of euros needed to rehabilitate the sinking "test repository" on the taxpayers (helpless in the crisis).
The environmental organization greenpeace has calculated on the basis of an inventory report from 2002 that only just under 23% of the radioactivity stored in the asse came from research reactors. In contrast, nearly 72% came from nuclear reactors to generate electricity. Greenpeace refers to a report of the GSF research center for environment and health, predecessor of today’s helmholtz zentrum munchen, which was prepared in 2002 . It is the "final report" with the title: "determination of the nuclide-specific activity inventory of the asse mine".
