Environmental impact assessment of the Nuclear Fuel Complex, Kota, Rajasthan: executive summary

Read Environment Impact Assessment of nuclear fuel complex proposed at Rawatbhata, Rajasthan. This project was opposed at the public hearing organized on 11 July 2012 by the Department of Atomic Energy and NPCIL.

The Nuclear Fuel Complex (NFC), one of the major industrial units of Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India, is solely responsible for manufacture and supply of nuclear fuel bundles to all nuclear power plants in India. To meet the increased demand of natural uranium dioxide (UO2) fuel bundles, NFC proposes to develop a nuclear fuel manufacturing project at the Rawatbhata, Rajasthan site (RR site) near to the existing Rajasthan Atomic Power Stations (RAPS). The prior environmental clearance is mandatory for the proposed township development. The first stage in prior environmental clearance process, i.e. scoping of EIA study and ToR approval for proposed NFC-Township has been obtained from MoEF through letter No. J.14011/2011-IA.II(N) dt. 14th March 2011. The present EIA report consists the results of the studies carried out in accordance with the provisions given in the EIA guidance manual for Building, Construction, Townships and area development projects and the ToR approved by MoEF.
