A grant of €23m ($25m) has been allocated from the Environmental Remediation Account for Central Asia (ERA), managed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) for remediation of Mailuu-Suu in Kyrgyzstan. This is one of the largest and most heavily contaminated uranium legacy sites in Central Asia. The grant – the largest since the establishment of the ERA – will help to stabilise and cover more than 2m cubic metres of radioactive tailings. Approximately 350,000 cubic metres tailings need to be relocated from the Mailuu-Suu River to a safe disposal site. This will prevent toxic material spreading into the Fergana Valley, which has a population of more than 15m.
