Most of the chemicals were previously enclosed in leaking, rusty or broken containers. Includes interviews with Dhruba Manandhar, National Agricultural Research Institute director, Andreas Bernstorff, Greenpeace Germany toxic waste expert and R.P. Satkopa, Nepal national agricultural research center executive director.A dozen Greenpeace activists from India, Germany, Netherland, Swiss and the UK, together with Nepalese agricultural technicians, had found waste sites in Kathmandu and Amlekgunj and store a stockpile of tons of highly toxic obsolete pesticides. In Amlekgunj a school is situated right next to the storage site.The pesticides were exported to Nepal by multinationals such as Degesch/Frankfurt, Hoechst, Merck, Ciba Geigy, Bayer, Sumitomo, Sandoz, Shell, Rhone Poulenc, Du Pont, Union Carbide (Dow) and Monsanto and abandoned after they reached their expiry date or were banned. Some of them, like Agalollo 3, Caresan have been banned in the US and Canada since 1977.The activists are containing all the poisons in high density barrels and hundreds of small containers, sachets and bags and are making them ready for sea transport back to their countries of origin. The deadly substances, which include banned pesticides such as dieldrin, chlorinated organomercury (chlororganisches Quecksilber) compounds and DDT, were manufactured and imported to Nepal by Western multinationals some 20 years ago. All the poisons were donated to Nepal or channelled through international aid mechanisms in order to open markets.The most dangerous substances found at the Nepalese site, located on the outskirts of Kathmandu, originate from the German chemical company Bayer. These include highly toxic chlorinated organomercury compounds, banned for use in the European Union since 1988.The obsolete pesticides have been inadequately stored in rusting and rotting original packaging in a warehouse at the National Agricultural Research Council (NARC). The toxic waste is threatening the health of residents, workers and livestock in the area as well as local water supplies, irrigation systems and soil. Already to breath metylbromid, a substance of content of most founded pesticides, could be deadly.Now 6 tons of waste repacked in 98 barrels are certificated by the independent technical inspection society TÜV Rheinland and will be readied for sea transport for professional disposal.Filmed in: JULY 2001 / OCTOBER 2001 / JANUARY 200215 Jul, 2001GreenpeaceDrehorte:NepalLänge:12m3sParent folder:NEPAL OBSOLETE PESTICIDES CONTAINMENT CLIPREEL, NEPAL, JULY & OCT. 2001, JAN. 2002Purpose:PublicShareKeywords:Banner-Chemieindustrie-Container-Dichlordiphenyltrichlorethan (DDT)-Fässer-Giftmüllentsorgung-Giftmüllhandel-Greenpeace Aktivisten-Greenpeace Experten-Pestizide Herbizide-QuecksilberBearbeitung:GeklammertSelect usageVerwendungszweck (Gebühren werden nur bei tatsächlicher Nutzung fällig)?Nennen Sie eine Medienkategorie für Ihren Verwendungszweck.
