Deep Geological Disposal

Deep Geological Disposal

Thirty countries around the world currently operate over 430 nuclear reactors. But there is still no system in place for the permanent disposal of the spent nuclear fuel. The IAEA considers deep disposal in stable geological formations as the only sustainable way to safely manage high-level waste; some countries, including Sweden, France, and Finland have decided to move forward with this option. Louise Potterton speaks to Peter Wikberg, the Research Director for Safety and Science at the Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company.
