Javys to make €5-8m on processing Italian nuclear waste
Javys, a state-owned nuclear decommissioning company, says it expects €26m sales and €5-8m profit from processing Italian nuclear waste. Coalition parties OĽaNO and Za ľudí are considering banning the processing of foreign nuclear waste in Slovakia; in that case, Javys would have to pay a €10m fine, as it has pledged to process 865 tons of Italian radioactive waste. It will export the processed waste back to Italy. To cope with the new contract, it has invested €20m (previously, it had only been processing domestic waste); the new facility still needs state permits to operate. It aims to use the Italian contract as a ticket to foreign markets.
