Investing in a Better Future

Deep Isolation is the first company of its kind to propose a method that leverages recent advances in horizontal drilling technology to deposit nuclear waste deep underground.

The solution, developed by accomplished scientists and validated by Nobel Laureates, is both groundbreaking and cost-effective. Deep Isolation has created a new pathway for solving a vexing half-century-old challenge – how to safely dispose of the nation’s radioactive nuclear waste.

  • The design for this solution has been successfully patented.
  • The nuclear waste disposal market is valued at $120 billion.
  • Disposal opportunities are $2 billion a year with 2,000 tons of waste generated annually. (The US currently spends $1-2 billion per year on interim storage.)

 

Accomplished Team of Experts

What sets Deep Isolation apart from other startups offering options in the public market is its world-class team of experts who have come together to evolve a sound concept into a viable and sellable solution that can be supported across technical, industry, and political fronts.

Deep Isolation has engaged:

  • Leading scientists and engineers with over a century of collective experience in the nuclear energy and waste fields that have been awarded honors such as MacArthur Genius, Nobel Laureate, and membership on the Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s Nuclear Future.
  • Recognized and respected experts that conducted stakeholder engagement efforts for the Blue Ribbon Commission and served a leading role in the Department of Energy (DOE) consent-based siting initiative.
  • Experienced and well-known Government Affairs advisors in the nuclear waste and political arenas that can work with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and the DOE.
  • Award-winning and proven communications, development, and management professionals with a documented track record of creating and executing compelling outreach and successful business plans.

Business Plan

Our business will provide patented services to long-term storage of nuclear fuel that removes the SNF from the biosphere. The business is expected to take 4 years to achieve revenues. Our focus is to receive permission from the NRC to contract with the DOE.

Our team of experts is working to find a state and location with:

  • Positive support for our solution
  • A utility company to partner with who sees benefits to our solution.
  • Land where nuclear waste is currently stored that also has the right geological features.

This process has 4 distinct phases:

  1. The NRC Approval Period
  2. NRC License Prep Period
  3. NRC License Review Period
  4. Site Prep
