Nuclear energy is a powerful form of energy that allows us to generate clean electricity. However, the waste it produces is difficult to deal with and is often the reason why nuclear energy has not become as popular as it perhaps should. According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, there are currently approximately 370,000 tonnes of spent nuclear fuel in temporary storage around the world.
Now, Swedish government has just approved a plan by the Swedish nuclear fuel and waste management company SKB to develop a storage facility that will keep country’s spent & highly radioactive nuclear fuel safe for next 100,000 coming years.
“It is a historical decision that allows SKB to dispose nuclear waste that our generation has produced. This decision is satisfied with open weapons. We are now looking forward to implementing The Sweden largest environmental protection project,” said in statement SKB CEO Johan Dasht.
SKB’s ambitious project has been in the works for more than 40 years and has seen collaboration of experts from universities, research institutes & higher education institutions in Sweden & around the world. It has also been closely reviewed by the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority & Land and Environmental court to ensure that it meets the strictest safety requirements for humans and the environment.
In addition to the approach of nuclear waste safely and secure, the project will also creates around 1,500 jobs. SKB is now waiting to complete the licensing process for the Land of Earth and the Environment & to receive appropriate authorizations from the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority.
When all these steps are completed, it will take about 10 years to build the facility. Although Swedes voted to phase out nuclear power in 1980, their views on the form of energy have since changed. It is now seen as an essential step towards ending the country’s dependence on fossil fuels and is welcomed by citizens.
