(OilPrice.com) – The United Kingdom has brought online Tajikistan’s first site to house radioactive material in Tajikistan. Tajikistan has massive uranium fields..
The storage facility was constructed in Tajikistan’s Faizabad (فیض آباد) region, 50 km east of the capital Dushanbe, where one of the country’s main soviet-era storage facilities for spent radioactive material is currently housed.
The project was financed by Britain’s Global Threat Reduction Program.
