‘Toxic’ odor in Brussels, residents told to keep doors & windows shut

A fire at a plant in the Drogenbos municipality to the south-west of the Belgian capital prompted authorities to release a statement warning that the smoke might be hazardous.

Police in Brussels asked residents in the southern and western parts of the city “to close windows and doors” on Saturday afternoon, local media report. Drivers in the area have also been strongly advised to shut off their ventilation, while roads in the affected area have been partially closed off.

“A fire at Engie [facility] in Drogenbos – toxic smells: close doors and windows, shut down ventilation with air coming from outside, remain indoors,” a text warning sent by local authorities said.

Locals have been complaining of a “smell that stings the nose” in an area covering several kilometers, RTBF reports. A TASS correspondent reported that “a smell of carbolic acid” could be detected in the south of Brussels, adding that the weather in the city is cold and windless. Local authorities are now considering a possible evacuation plan, the agency reports.

Initial reports indicated the fire broke out on the premises of a biopharmaceutical company in the area. At least two containers with unidentified products at UCB Pharma in Drogenbos caught fire, local radio station BRUZZ reported, citing a fire department spokesperson. The official warned that the smoke was “slightly toxic.”

However, it was later reported that the incident happened at a local power plant. Lithium batteries at the site caught fire, according to RTBF, citing local authorities. The warning to keep windows shut remained in place, the media said.

欧州のルテニウム106の放出源はロシアのウラル南部と推定された 日本にも流れてきているはず

フランスIRSNの発表でこの1か月半ほど続いた欧州のベータ線上昇は、ロシア南部チェリャビンスクあるいはエカテリンブルグの近辺からルテニウム106が放出されていることによると推定されています。


チェリャビンスクあるいはエカテリンブルグの近辺はウラルの核惨事があったところで、核関連の施設が立地しています。

日本までの距離。東京へは緯度的に影響が出がたいかなとも思いますし、1か月半も続いていれば地球上余すところなく拡散したかな、とも思えます。

Harmless radioactive cloud spread over Europe from Russia or Kazakhstan

A cloud of radioactive pollution over Europe in recent weeks was likely from a nuclear facility in Russia or Kazakhstan. The French nuclear safety institute IRSN said the leak took place in the last week of September.

The IRSN - the technical arm of French nuclear regulator ASN – said on Thursday that in recent weeks it and several other nuclear safety institutes in Europe had measured high levels of ruthenium 106, a radioactive nuclide that is the product of splitting atoms in a nuclear reactor and does not occur naturally.

The IRSN estimated that the quantity of ruthenium 106 released was major, between 100 and 300 teraBecquerels.

"Measurement results from European stations communicated to the Institute since October 3 have confirmed the presence of ruthenium-106 in the atmosphere of the majority of European countries," IRSN said.

If an accident of this size had happened in France it would have required the evacuation in a radius of several kilometers around the accident site.

The IRSN ruled out an accident at a nuclear reactor, saying it was likely to have come from a nuclear fuel treatment site or radioactive medicine center.

IRSN said there has been no impact on human health or the environment in Europe.

The agency also said in a statement it could not determine exactly where the release of radioactive material took place, but based on weather patterns the most likely zone lay south of the Ural mountains, thus either in Russia or Kazakhstan, an IRSN official said.

"Russian authorities have said they are not aware of an accident on their territory,” IRSN director Jean-Marc Peres told the news agency Reuters.

A spokeswoman for the Russian emergencies ministry said she could not immediately comment, The Guardian newspaper reported.
