Mmmm, "If it aint broke dont fix it", comes to mind here.
Good old Australia is at it again.
There seems to be a never ending line of geniuses that seem compelled to have to change everything around then and often with serious unanticipated bad consequences.
This next little gem might be a good idea, but I do wonder about whether the inclusion of completely sealed transportation and complete dissinfection of transports and workers would also come into consideration here as well, along with all the associated costs.
Surely the tried and proven methods of digging large holes in the ground at the site where the contaigen is, with appropriate incineration and or dissinfection before burial would be the safest, cheapest and most logical solution.
Oh, perhaps that is why its done this way already!!
Honestly this smells heavily of some bright spark greenie trying to make a statement about power stations more than anything of real value, and it the type of journalism our heavily green ABC would indulge in reporting, just rubbish...again!Power stations considered for biosecurity clean up
