Report - The Global Crisis of Nuclear Waste

Auteur(s) : Robert Alvarez, Hideyuki Ban, Miles Goldstick, Bernard Laponche, Pete Roche and Bertrand Thuillier


In this report commissionned by Greenpeace France, international independent experts produce an overview about the current status of nuclear waste across the world.

Focusing on 7 major nuclearized countries (Belgium, France, Japan, Sweden, Finland, United Kingdom and United States), it shows that the multiple stages of the nuclear fuel cycle produce large volumes of radioactive wastes; and that no government has yet resolved how to safely manage these wastes.

The conclusion of the report is clear: underground repository research has failed as a solution.
