Step by step, the little talked about Lebanese Atomic Energy Commission is protecting citizens from harmful radioactive waste.There are still materials waiting to be exported in three Lebanese hospitals.Nsouli praised Friday's efforts as an "achievement," as the materials exported had been originally imported to Lebanon prior to the establishment of LAEC in 1996 . However, new initiatives are required if the commission is to expand its role as Lebanon's silent guardian against radioactive waste, he added.Protection, Nsouli said, entails finding ways to safely store radioactive materials away from groups that could attempt to appropriate them.As it stands there are no Lebanese institutions that teach the technical skills required to store and dispose of radioactive waste, so the commission is obliged to send its staff abroad for training, Nsouli explained.
