The success of nuclear power across the empire cannot be denied. With sites producing clean energy not beset by problems associated with pollution or greenhouse gas emission, nuclear power is an important element in your energy mix. However, one thorny issue is now getting wider prominence among the citizens: how to handle nuclear waste, especially the waste with a half-life of millenia. Some fear radioactive contamination, others the opportunities afforded to terrorist groups. What should be the play?
Local opposition will need to be countered, but deep sites, with state-of-the-art encapsulation should ensure safety for future generations.
Once safely beyond our borders, the waste will no longer be our concern.
The private sector is best equipped to make this problem a profitable endeavour.
