US companies to cooperate on waste disposal technology

12 november 2019

Deep Isolation and NAC International are to cooperate in the design, development and manufacture of Deep Isolation's disposal canister technology.

Berkeley, California-based Deep Isolation has developed a solution for the management of used nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste (HLW) by emplacing it in corrosion-resistant canisters placed in deep horizontal drillholes. The agreement will see the two companies collaborate to advance the technical aspects of Deep Isolation's design for canister storage, disposal and equipment for transferring used fuel and HLW from existing storage areas to a Deep Isolation repository, using NAC's dry fuel storage technologies.
