Norman Neureiter, head of the 22-member committee of the National Academy of Sciences, said the tsunami-spawned disaster at Fukushima nuclear power plant and its continuing impact have caused widespread concerns about the safety of nuclear energy.

“We are trying to look at the whole experience and to take from that lessons which can be applied to increasing safety of nuclear power,” he told The Associated Press during a coffee break between technical sessions.

Neureiter said the committee is hearing from Japanese officials and will conduct its own investigation. He said the findings would be valuable to the nuclear industry throughout the world.
