Oil and Gas have been discovered in underground basins where it had been trapped for MILLIONS of years under very high pressures and temperatures and are now produced by DRILLING into these basins.
Using the best available technology to locate closed basins that are amenable to nuclear waste sequestration.
By analyzing the chemistry of these formations and their contained fluids the scientists are able to show by geochemical analysis, that the basin has been impermeable for thousands or millions of years and that no material has left the zone over that time. The need for 10,000 year storage is a very short interval in geological time.pan
Minimize global costs while maintaining and maximizing safety.
