EU nuclear group invites views on deep geological waste disposal via Platts

An EU nuclear expert group is calling for public feedback by February 13 on how best to manage deep geological disposal of nuclear waste, the European Commission said Monday.

The EC set up the group, known as the implementing geological disposal of radioactive waste technology platform, in 2009 to support EU-wide research, development and demonstration of safe, deep geological disposal of spent fuel and other long-lived radioactive waste.
