» Government will make list of candidate proposal sites for the nuclear waste

The government plans to abandon its ineffective policy of waiting for municipalities to volunteer to host a final disposal site for high-level radioactive waste.

According to the plan, the government will try to accelerate the selection process by listing candidate disposal sites for the waste generated from the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel and considering support measures for potential host communities.

The proposal was unveiled during a meeting of a panel that is reviewing the nation’s stalled efforts to find an underground repository site for waste created as a result of operating nuclear power plants.
