Geological disposal of nuclear waste – a focus of interest in the coming months

GDF Watch 18th Oct 2020, Just  when you thought 2020 couldn’t get any weirder, geological disposal
programmes around the globe are making significant steps forward, all at
the same time.

More seems to have happened, in sociopolitical terms, in the
past month than perhaps in the rest of this Century combined: Swedish
community voting to host their nation’s geological repository; Two
Japanese communities choose to enter into initial discussions; expectation
in UK that at least one community will come forward; Germany publishes
geological analysis identifying potential host areas; Canada completes
acquisitions of land that could host a repository; Hungary Opposition
leader wants public debate on radwaste disposal;

Country situations are analysed in more detail below, but taken together, it seems clear that
geological disposal will become a feature of media and political focus in
countries around the world over the coming 18-24 months.
