The Close Capenhurst Campaign was founded in 2013 by a number of groups and organisations.

Our key aim is to close down the URENCO owned Capenhurst Uranium enrichment plant. and to show how the plant links in to the wider nukiller industry.

Our main concerns centres around the transport and use of Uranium Hex.

Plus the way in which nukiller waste is transported by Rail.

The Close Capenhurst Campaign is a direct descendent of earlier campaigns such as Stop Urenco & The Snowball campaign of the late 1980s / Early 1990s.

The Close Capenhurst Campaign is part of the
North West Anti Nukiller Alliance.

  1. After the Fukushima Dai’ichi accident, there are huge amounts of nuclear waste at Fukushima Dai’ichi. It is estimated that there are tens of thousands of nuclear fuel rod bundles. Is there a risk that some of the processing of waste from the Fukushima Dai’ichi site will occur via Sellafield and Capenhurst. If the answer to this question is “yes”, then we should expect huge expansion at Capenhurst and Sellafield.

  2. Dear Sir/Madam

    Hinkley Point C is vastly over-budget and likely to be much more expensive than renewables, for electricity production purposes. My expectations are that there may potentially even eventually be built a cluster of Thorium LFTR’s at Hinkley Point C, possibly built by a consortium including Rolls Royce Plc. and Flibe Inc.. Companies such as Flibe Inc. propose that nuclear waste such as Pu239 can be transmuted in such Thorium LFTR’s to render it far safer.

    In your humble view, especially now that such huge quantities of nuclear waste are in existence and need to rendered safe vis-a-vis the environment, is such a Thorium LFTR development to be encouraged or just adding to the problems? Your careful professional opinion in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards
