  • New long-term plan to safely dispose of radioactive waste

    It follows a consultation on improving the process of finding a site to host a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF), which will safely isolate our radioactive waste deep underground and inside multiple barriers to provide protection over hundreds of thousands of years. Building a GDF will help us permanently deal with waste from decades of generating low-carbon electricity from nuclear power. It ...

  • Deep-water fish remove over a million tonnes of CO2 in Irish-UK waters every year

    Deep-water fish living along the Irish-UK continental slope remove more than a million tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere each year, according to a recent study. Continental slope ecosystems play an important role in carbon sequestration, which should be considered before exploiting deep-water resources, say the researchers. Transport of carbon from the ocean surface to deep water is affected by ...

  • U.S. EPA designates area off Guam for disposal of clean sediments from dredging (GU)

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has published a Final Rule in the Federal Register designating an ocean disposal site offshore of Guam for clean sediments from dredging projects. Dredging is necessary to maintain or improve safe navigation in existing ports and harbors, as well as when new shipping facilities are built. Whenever possible, the sediments from dredging projects are ...

  • Government consults on nuclear waste policy

    Decommissioning Dounreay generates a variety of different wastes that need to be managed carefully to protect the public and environment from harm. Some of this waste is radioactive. The most hazardous form of radioactive waste generated at Dounreay is known as intermediate-level waste and comes from a variety of redundant plant such as nuclear reactors, fuel reprocessing and laboratories. A key ...

  • UK appoints new radioactive waste management committee

  • Underground lab tackles Japan nuclear waste issue

    Reindeer farms and grazing Holstein cows dot a vast stretch of rolling green pasture here on Japan's northern tip. Underground it's a different story. Workers and scientists have carved a sprawling laboratory deep below this sleep dairy town that, despite government reassurances, some of Horonobe's 2,500 residents fear could turn their neighborhood into a nuclear waste storage site. "I'm ...
