  • Description
  • Contents

This valuable book chronicles the evolving spent fuel storage methods that enabled nuclear power plants to remain operating despite repeated delays in opening the geological repository. It describes potential spent fuel risks, with numerous examples of near-misses. And it explains one nuclear power plant's design deficiencies for spent fuel pool cooling as well as design faults that may exist in several other operating nuclear power plants.
Nuclear Waste Disposal Crisis offers a factual accounting of a problem which, if left unaddressed, can have disastrous consequences. It qualifies as required reading for professionals everywhere, regardless of political or industry allegiances.
