Nuclear power contributes over 10% of the world’s power needs. From the 500 reactors built around the world, the growing inventory of nuclear waste is over 450,000 metric tons and is increasing by ~12,000 tons each year. In the US, there is currently ~$40 Billion in the Nuclear Waste Fund, with no active program to dispose of the 80,000 tons of nuclear waste. Many countries are actively seeking new options as no country anywhere in the world has ever disposed of high-level waste or spent nuclear fuel. A new approach is needed. Nuclear waste disposal is a $500 billion worldwide market. Deep Isolation is the first private company to offer a solution to dispose of nuclear waste in safe, permanent deep geologic repositories. A solution that is proven, demonstrated and primed to disrupt and dominate in this untapped market. Deep Isolation combines scientific and nuclear expertise with sophisticated stakeholder engagement skills to work alongside communities to design and deliver an equitable and environmentally protective solution.
