This October, the International Panel on Fissile Materials [IPFM] has launched the report Managing Spent Fuel from Nuclear Power Reactors: Experience and Lessons from Around the World. The report describes how a number of countries that are using nuclear power deal with their spent nuclear fuel.
Today, the power companies – Vattenfall, E.ON and Fortum – submitted a license application through their subsidiary SKB to build a final repository for spent nuclear fuel in Forsmark. The application was submitted to the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority [SRSA] and to the Environmental Court, despite the heavy criticism that has been aimed towards the company.
