Jacques from FAO), 2) our responsibility for the environment (by D. Zeeuw from ITAL), 3) pilot plant for the irradiation of sewage sludge (by A. Suesz from Bayerische Landesanstalt fuer Bodenkultur und Pflanzenbau, Munich), 4) nuclear agronomy in France (by P. Guerin de Montgareuil from CEN, Cadarache). Summaries and provisional papers on presented topics will be published in ''ESNA Newsletter''
[en] Under a series of document exchange agreements with environmental agencies in other countries, EPA is building a collection of environmental reports issued by foreign governments and international organizations. This is a monthly announcement listing of foreign documents received through the exchange agreements. This series, devoted to summaries of government reports and other pertinent literature and focusing on the legislative, organizational, economic, and social aspects of environmental protection, supplements foreign scientific and technical literature abstracted by other EPA information services
[en] This Act extends and reformulates existing statutory controls relating in particular to the disposal of waste on land and pollution of water. The disposal of waste on land is made subject to a licensing procedure and waste is so defined as not to exclude radioactive waste. The Act does not apply to radioactive waste within the meaning of the Radioactive Substances Act 1960 but the Secretary of State may make regulations providing for appropriate provisions of the Act to have effect so as to deal with radioactive waste. Similarly it does not apply to radioactive waste within the meaning of the said Act of 1960. Thus authorisations granted under the 1960 Act for disposal of radioactive waste continue to have effect and will continue to be granted, unless and until regulations are made under the Act providing otherwise.

[fr]Cette Loi revise et etend les controles reglementaires notamment au stockage terrestre des dechets et a la pollution de l'eau. Le stockage terrestre des dechets est soumis a une procedure d'autorisation; les dechets sont definis de facon a ne pas exclure les dechets radioactifs. La Loi ne s'applique pas aux dechets radioactifs, au sens de la Loi de 1960 sur les substances radioactives; le Secretaire d'Etat peut cependant prescrire que certaines dispositions appropriees de la Loi s'appliqueront de facon a couvrir les dechets radioactifs. Elle ne s'applique pas non plus aux dechets radioactifs au sens de la Loi 1960 sur les substances radioactives. En consequence, les autorisations delivrees en vertu de ladite Loi de 1960 continueront a etre valides ou a etre delivrees jusqu'a ce que de nouvelles reglementations en decidant autrement soient prises en vertu de la presente Loi
[en] Cost analyses of sludge pasteurization by heat treatment were made in six Swiss sewage treatment plants during 1973. Data indicate that specific cost figures will be between S.Fr.3.- and 14.- per cubic metre, depending mainly on capacity and actual output of the plant. The risk of infection for man and animals is a controversial question. Public health experts deny hazards from agricultural utilization of unpasteurized digested sludges, whereas veterinary hygienists stress the potential dangers for animals and man. A practicable pragmatic approach is suggested until sufficient evidence is available. Energy, ecological and economic aspects must be taken into consideration. (Author)
