One small step toward responsible nuclear waste disposal?

In spite of its hydro and wind power (not to mention fossil fuel) resources, Norway is in the process of considering small nuclear reactors (SMR) for some applications. Far flung population and industrial centers may make SMRs useful to, for example, towns in the far north (above the arctic circle) that rely on fossil fuel ...

Waste will see combination of repositories, boreholes, recycling

The long-term toxicity of nuclear waste is the most pervasive argument against nuclear power but spent fuel can be effectively, permanently, and safely dealt with through a combination of deep-hole repositories, boreholes, and recycling.
