The Science

Our group of Ukrainian and UK scientists has been studying the transfer of radioactivity to crops both in the main Exclusion Zone (CEZ) and in the Narodychi District within the Zone of Obligatory Resettlement, where land can't officially be used for agriculture, but people still live.

The research shows that in many areas land could be used to produce crops which are safe to eat. As every chemist knows, distillation of fermented crops leaves many heavier elements in the waste product so the distillate alcohol is much more "pure" than the original crop. We have used distillation to reduce radioactivity in the crop even further to make a product from Chernobyl which we hope people will want to consume !
