Creating a Market for Nuclear Waste Disposal
September 16, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This presentation will describe the innovative application of directional drilling to create horizontal drillholes deep underground just large enough to store or dispose of fuel assemblies encased in highly corrosion-resistant canisters. Furthermore, it will address the benefits from having private companies enter the nuclear waste industry as well as the challenges Deep Isolation faced and overcame to bring this much-needed solution in a highly-regulated and at times, stagnant environment.
