Concept for an International Radioactive Waste Repository (IAEA, Pangea Resources)

Nuclear waste is an extremely relevant topic, as more and more nuclear power plants are being built worldwide.

To date, we do not have a fully viable solution for the storage of radioactive waste.

Nuclear waste has become a highly contentious issue in Japan and Germany. Both countries are highly-industralized, in the aftermatch of the Fukushima crisis they have been roiled by the anti-nuclear movement. Shortly after the crisis in Fukushima, the German government has decided that it is time to shut down all nuclear reactors and replace their existing share of electricity output with renewable energy. But there are very few industrialized countries in the world today that have embarked on a nuclear phase-out program. Fukushima was a major turning point for Europe’s energy industry.

But the opposite is true as well: We discover that some of the world’s most formidable industrial powerhouses decisively commit to nuclear power. Asian countries want to expand their civilian use of nuclear energy. Some European countries feed almost the same amount of nuclear energy into their electricity grid as 10 years ago, as a share of total energy output.

1. Nuclear waste disposal has become a major issue for Western governments

The question of nuclear waste disposal looms large on the horizon and governments will have to make a choice how to dispose of their existing radioactive waste and disposal options for future nuclear waste. Rock dating back to the Pangean period can be found in Argentina, South Africa, China and Australia. But due to political considerations, Western Australia has become the first choice to store radioactive waste material underground at a depth of possibly 500 to maybe 100 meters deep. There are different estimates.

Another point that is often made is the geographic isolation of some parts of Australia. Weather conditions that make this part of the world ideal for storing nuclear waste material.

The Australian government, quite understandably, decided to further examine this issue. Nevertheless, Australia is one of the largest producers of uranium world-wide. So the argument goes Australia will have to play a role in nuclear waste disposal. The fact that Australia is politically stable and democratic in addition to the topographic features and geology makes Australia stand out internationally for nuclear waste disposal.
