The accident, known as the Kyshtym
disaster, led to evacuation of thousands of people from the area.
I was so shocked by this statement - demonstrably and extremely inaccurate - but was not challenged by WA committee members during the hearing who submitted short corrective evidence to the committee Apart from Chernobyl and the list above, there was also the 1957 Kyshtym
disaster in Russia.
Nuclear accidents are rare but five rated as "severe" have occurred during the past 60 years - Russia's Kyshtym
in 1957, Windscale in Britain in 1957, Three Mile Island in the United States in 1979, Chernobyl in 1986 and Japan's Fukushima in 2011.
He says that in 1958, at Kyshtym
, a Russian nuclear installation exploded devastating the area for hundreds of miles.
More than 50 years after the little-known Kyshtym
disaster, Sebastian Mez scouts the abandoned landscape for scars of the past and highlights the dangers of this invisible slayer.
General director of Karabashmed company and Kyshtym
Electrolytic Copper Plant Alexander Golov, director of Uralcranes company Marat Imamiev, and general director of Tractor company Vladimir Andryushenko participated in the meeting as well.
b) Throughout the history of nuclear power generation there have been four major incidents of plant failure - the Kyshtym
accident in fuel reprocessing in 1957, the relatively smaller Three Mile Island meltdown (United States), the much bigger Chernobyl accident (USSR, 1986) and the recent Japanese incident at Fukushima.
The Fukushima disaster is another opportunity to learn, adding to Chernobyl and Three Mile Island, and also to earlier incidents involving the Windscale reactor in the United Kingdom and the Kyshtym
accident in the Urals.
The 1986 Chernobyl disaster justifiably gave Ukrainians and Belorussians a feeling of being victims, but Kyshtym
in Cheliabinsk oblast suffered radioactive contamination over a long period and an actual explosion in 1957.
The third largest refined copper producer is Kyshtym
Copper Electrolyte Plant (KCEP), Chelyabinsk region in the Urals, which produced 63,000 t of refined copper in 1999, up 174% from 1998.
was a nuclear waste storage facility in the Ural Mountains which had an accident in 1957, apparently contaminating a large area.
