Partnerships for a Better Future

Deep Isolation has developed an innovative solution to address the critical national challenge of how to safely dispose of nuclear waste and improve community well-being.

Safety & Support

Our first priority is protecting human health and the environment and we will meet or exceed regulatory requirements.  Equally important is how we go about our work: we are committed to earning your trust and support through a dedicated effort of engagement and dialogue.

Genuine Community Partnership

We’re committed to engagement and dialogue  so you can determine if our disposal solution supports your community’s values.

We build our model of community partnership around a shared understanding of nuclear waste management. We work with all stakeholders and interested members of the public to create this partnership and build lasting relationships.

As a first step towards building these partnerships, we are meeting  communities who may be interested in learning more about the Deep Isolation opportunity.

At the same time, we are creating opportunities for our team of experts to learn from you. Whether you are directly or indirectly affected by the 60 nuclear waste storage sites in the country, we want to hear your thoughts.

We want to hear from you

Mary Woollen is one of the many experts at Deep Isolation who is seeking this dialogue.

I became focused on nuclear waste disposal 20 years ago when I formed an environmental group. Since this time I have worked on many sides of the issue–for the Blue Ribbon Commission, Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Department of Energy. Although the perspectives may differ between these entities, the commitment to safely store and dispose of the waste does not. We can’t let another decade pass to solve the impasse of nuclear waste disposal and it will require collaboration and partnership amongst all to do so.
