Finnish expertise the key to global solutions in the storage of spent nuclear fuel
Hundreds of thousands of tons of spent nuclear fuel from nuclear reactor sites all over the world are still without a safe long-term storage option. On 20 August 2017, Last Week Tonight stated that, in the US alone, the amount of spent nuclear fuel sitting in nuclear power plants is a whopping 71,000 tons. If all that waste was gathered in a single location, we would end up with a pile of spent uranium rods the size of an entire football field and over 20 feet tall. One out of three Americans lives within 50 miles of nuclear waste.
