Our Friends

Re-use of Chernobyl abandoned areas is not a new idea, nor is using distillation to produce a product with much lower radioactivity levels. Science is a community effort and there are very many scientists who have worked to understand and mitigate the consequences of the Chernobyl accident. 


Some of our friends who have helped with this project are: Oleg Nasvit, First Deputy Head of the State Agency of Ukraine for Exclusion Zone Management, Sergey Kireev of the Chernobyl ECOCENTRE, Sergey Obrizan of The Chernobyl Biosphere Reserve, Valery Kashparov and Sviatoslav Levchuk of the Ukrainian Institute of Agricultural Radiology, Dmitri Bugay of the Institute of Geological Sciences of Ukraine, Phil Warwick and Joerg Wiedenmann of the University of Southampton and Mo Hoque of the University of Portsmouth.

The research which led to ATOMIK grain spirit was part funded by the University of Portsmouth and the UK Natural Environment Research Council iCLEAR project with partners Jim Smith of the University of Portsmouth; Nick Beresford of the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and Mike Wood of the University of Salford as well as the Ukrainan institutes above.
