Nuclear Waste: Where's the Fairness in the NWMO's "Willing Host" Decision?

Webinar Register

The Nuclear Waste Management Organization has announced (repeatedly) that it will select its preferred site for a deep geological repository in which it will place all of Canada's high-level nuclear fuel waste (that's 60,000 tonnes and counting). The NWMO claims it will only proceed with an "informed and willing host". The final decision to approve the site, the design, and the operation will be made by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission. This webinar will explore issues with each.

Webinar 4

CHALLENGING NWMO'S CLAIM OF AN “INTERNATIONAL CONSENSUS” THAT DGRS ARE THE PREFERRED AND ACCEPTED OPTION FOR THE STORAGE OF NUCLEAR WASTE.

This fourth webinar in the Protect Our Waterways series will look at international experience with proposed deep geological repositories, challenging the NWMO claim of an “international consensus” that DGRs are the preferred and accepted option. Join Panelists from Sweden and the U.S. who share their insights and observations about the Swedish and U.S. national programs for deep geological repositories, including a status report on their countries efforts to site, design and bring into operation a DGR for nuclear fuel waste, and analysis of related technical and social issues.​

Spoiler alert: there is no deep geological repository for high level nuclear fuel waste
