Activity in gaseous and liquid releases
Gaseous and liquid activity (annual releases) observed at La Hague in 1999, 2000 and 2001. The activity levels, stated in TBq (terabecquerels), are compared with the maximum permitted annual releases (NB: results have tended to improve since that period). Note that the principal releases in terms of activity (krypton 85 and tritium) are not highly toxic. The other releases were far below the authorised limits.
