Priority question for written answer  P-000089/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Annalisa Tardino (ID)
 Subject: Storage of radioactive waste – methodology used to identify eligible areas

On 30 October 2020, the Commission sent Italy, Austria and Croatia a letter of formal notice on account of their not having established a national radioactive-waste management programme.

Italy has started the procedure to locate a suitable site for its national radioactive waste repository and technology park, and then build and operate it.

Having received clearance from the Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of the Environment, Land and Sea, SOGIN published the National Charter of Potentially Suitable Areas (the CNAPI) for storage of radioactive waste materials, but without consulting the regional executives and mayors concerned. The Charter has identified four potentially suitable sites in Sicily and 14 in Sardinia, all of which are on lands given over to farming and tourism and close to seismic areas and parks or sites rich in natural beauty and wildlife.

In light of the above, can the Commission answer the following questions:

1. Is it not absolutely essential that the criteria employed to identify eligible areas take the specific characteristics of these areas into account?

2. Would the Commission not agree that in identifying sites such as those referred to above, the methodologies used must have been simplistic and erroneous and clearly at odds with the physical, social, economic and cultural indicators of these two islands?
