Haldia Petrochemicals: The ‘battery of chemicals’ that produced the Fukushima Daiichi meltdown
Haldias petro chemical subsidiary is one of several companies implicated in the Fukushima disaster, and in the US, its chairman, Mr Daniel Haldes, is also a prominent lobbyist for the energy sector.
Mr Haldis is one the most influential men in the UK, and one of the most prominent lobbyists for the chemical industry in the country.
It was he who lobbied the US government on behalf of his company, which was fined $US10 million for the accident.
In his speech, Mr Halde said the US would not tolerate any further nuclear accidents.
In a statement to the BBC, he said: “It is wrong to use nuclear power as a weapon, but it is equally wrong to allow any company to be involved in a nuclear power plant accident and to be held responsible.”
In a similar speech to the US on Wednesday, Mr Bannister said that he had been asked by the US to join his company in lobbying on behalf. “
This is what the UK has been doing for a number of decades and I would like to see this programme of action continue.”
In a similar speech to the US on Wednesday, Mr Bannister said that he had been asked by the US to join his company in lobbying on behalf.
He said: In this particular case, I’m pleased to say that our lobbying activities have been successful in bringing about the necessary change to ensure that the safety of the nuclear fuel cycle in the United States can be ensured.
“Our goal is to encourage the US and other nations to follow the lead of Japan and South Korea, who have adopted this approach.”
