Protecting Our Future with a Safe and Permanent Solution for Nuclear Waste Disposal
1 in 3 Americans lives within 50 miles of a
nuclear waste storage site.
Many sites are above ground and exposed to open air.
No present solution has been approved by the
U.S. Government for permanent storage.

Deep Isolation has a solution:
Isolating waste in deep, stable rock formations provides unparalleled safety for permanently disposing of nuclear waste.
Deep Isolation takes advantage of recent advances in drilling technology for an inexpensive, safe, and modular solution for nuclear waste disposal.
Deep Isolation is supported by a diverse
panel of industry experts
Deep Isolation is adapting recently developed drilling technologies to make disposal of nuclear fuel less expensive and even safer than other approaches. This is a technology that could prove important, not only in the US, but around the world.
Citizens are concerned and want
Government to take action.
A recent survey conducted by the GfK KnowledgePanel Omnibus revealed that 90% of Americans support innovation to help solve the nuclear waste problem.
The majority of Americans also feel that the government should prioritize finding less expensive solutions and be able to contract with private companies for the disposal of nuclear waste.
