The Multinational Repository Concept: Shared Solutions for Solving the Radioactive Waste Management Challenge facing Emerging Countries and those with Small Nuclear Programs
This panel discussion will focus on shared waste management solutions for current and emerging nuclear countries, which will initially operate at most a few large nuclear power plants or potentially a number of new small modular reactors. Countries with substantial inventories of spent nuclear fuel are pursuing their national repository programs with varying degrees of progress. However, countries with only a few reactors and those at the beginning stages of their nuclear programs face a different and substantial challenge toward developing a cost effective national spent fuel disposal solution. This discussion brings together a panel of experts from government and industry to explore shared solutions involving the development of a multinational repository to include international perspectives and recent progress.
