Next Thursday’s (Oct 15) Adelaide public hearing at the Nuclear Fuel Chain Royal Commission (NFCRC) could be an interesting one.
It will be about the concept of leasing uranium – the idea that Australia continues to “own” uranium , so contracts to take back all radioactive trash.
It’s not a new idea – pushed for decades by Dr John White
and by the former Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP) and the current International Framework for Nuclear Energy Cooperation (IFNEC)
Topics to be addressed at this public session: G Concept of nuclear fuel leasing and potential demand for those services G The international and commercial arrangements necessary to establish a fuel leasing operation
