Successfully creating a deep geological disposal site for high-level waste has long been a key challenge for the nuclear industry. Now, a series of breakthroughs seems to show light at the end of the tunnel.
Nuclear waste disposal presents a frustrating problem far beyond its actual danger. No one has ever been harmed by commercial nuclear waste, and no one is likely to ever be harmed.
Chris Parker, Jesse Sloane, Mark Frei, from Deep Isolation and Steve Sisley from NAC describe the recent advances in canister engineering designs for storage, transportation and disposal of spent fuel assemblies from pressurized water reactors in the International Journal for Nuclear Power, beginning on page 39.
Teri Sforza with the Orange Country Register details how other nations are solving the problem of radioactive waste but tons of it still sit at San Onofre. Deep Isolation is mentioned for its deep borehole technology.
Oklo Inc. has been awarded a $6.1 million cost-share project in partnership with Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne), Deep Isolation, and Case Western Reserve University from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E). The project is funded under the ARPA-E Converting Used Nuclear Fuel Radioisotopes into Energy (CURIE) program. The CURIE program ...
A new round of US DOE funding is supporting a swathe of new technologies that aim to effect a dramatic reduction in the volume of waste from the new generation of advanced nuclear reactor technologies. Deep Isolation partners with two groups receiving grant funding.
Deep Isolation has signed a Memorandum of Agreement with technical and engineering services provider Amentum to cooperate on the commercialisation of Deep Isolation’s radioactive waste disposal technology around the world.

“Hysteria never helps anyone, and we believe in taking a measured approach to the science,” said Elizabeth. “I think there is as much exaggeration taking place as there is denial of the problem. Science isn’t perfect, and I’m sure there are many things at play we can never be 100 percent sure about. But regardless, ...
The traditional electric power industry has received a big jolt from the sudden outbreak of Russia-Ukraine war. In order to ensure uninterrupted supply of electricity at an affordable price with low carbon footprint, most of the countries will now concentrate on harnessing nuclear energy.
