Canada’s Nuclear Waste Management Plan with Andrew Parmenter
Aug 29th, 2021 by Earth News Interviews
In this episode, we interview Andrew Parmenter, a geologist working for the Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO), a not-for-profit organization tasked with the safe, long-term storage of Canada’s used nuclear fuel in a manner that protects people and the environment for generations to come. Nuclear waste is a reality our generation has been tasked with storing in a safe way after being passed on from previous generations. We touch upon the key features of long-term nuclear waste repositories, building strong relationships with local Indigenous communities, and what the role of a geologist is in a project of this scale and importance.
