Recycling Nuclear Waste: Addressing Nuclear Waste in the 21st Century

Hosted by U.S. Senator Tom Carper, Monday May 18, 2009 One of the long-term questions about nuclear energy is how to manage the waste. For many years, U.S. nuclear utilities have paid fees to the federal government for nuclear waste disposal. But work on disposal has come with delays and roadblocks. It is time to responsibly move forward to address the nuclear waste issue. Senator Carper’s roundtable brings together MIT and Harvard professors to investigate options for handling the United States’ nuclear waste through recycling and reprocessing. Experts in the field will discuss the pros and cons of recycling technologies, providing information Senator Carper will take back to Congress with him during the ongoing congressional debate.
