What We Heard: Exploring Major Themes of the Nuclear Waste Conversation


Register for this Event  

Join the Bipartisan Policy Center discussion on the challenges and solutions to America’s nuclear waste management, as well as the next steps to be taken by the Nuclear Waste Council to bring this conversation to implementation.

The Bipartisan Policy Center’s (BPC) Nuclear Waste Initiative was designed to reinvigorate and expand the discussion on nuclear waste, identify barriers prohibiting progress on storage and disposal of the waste, and explore options to create a viable national strategy for its long-term and safe disposition.

Over the past 18 months, the council has traveled across the country to discuss nuclear waste issues with industry and community leaders, and recently published a series of issue briefs outlining findings from those meetings and updating the state of play on storage, transportation and other topics.
