Did you know that America could provide clean, carbon free electricity nationwide for 250 years with something considered “waste”? How about that this “waste” is full of priceless isotopes and compounds that can be sold for billions of dollars to various industries? Unfortunately, many Americans have been conditioned to think of the nuclear industry and particularly its “waste” (AKA spent nuclear fuel) in a completely negative light, often due to ridiculous and unworkable policies that have failed to secure it or unlock its untapped potential. The truth is that this industry and that “spent fuel” could be the key to long-term (clean) energy security for America and massive economic opportunity – but only if we are smart about what we do with it. Join our Center for Security Policy at 1pm ET on September 22nd for a webinar to learn more about the risks and opportunities associated with used nuclear fuel.
