End of the road for Swedish repository?

After nearly three decades of R&D efforts, close observers are asking themselves if perhaps the Swedish nuclear industry hasn’t reached a dead end concerning nuclear waste storage. The question arises after SKB AB, the industry’s jointly owned company for nuclear waste solutions, published a “preliminary” environmental impact statement (EIS) on the KBS-3 scheme in December of last year. The report fails to meet even rudimentary requirements of an EIS. On the whole, it seems a half-hearted effort.
