  • Hungary says noticed increase in iodine-131 emission

    BUDAPEST, Nov 17 (Reuters) - Hungarian isotope maker Izotop Intezet had registered an increase in radioactive iodine-131 emission at its Budapest laboratory earlier this year and suspended production until its filters are fixed, it said in a statement.

    The institute said it had first registered an increase in iodine-131 emission in the first half of the year, which were below the health threshold, however it suspended output between June and August and made adjustments to the filtering system.
