The shale industry will not benefit from deep borehole repositories for nuclear waste. In this safety calculation report, the safety of storing spent fuel in shale rock was investigated because shale (and other clay-rich formations) have properties that help isolate the waste from people and the near-surface environment. In the United States, under the Nuclear Waste Policy Act, all nuclear waste repositories will be owned by the federal government, specifically the Department of Energy. If a Deep Isolation system is adopted by another country, the ownership would be contingent upon the unique governance and ownership aspects of that country.
