Show Notes

Ask most in the know, and they will tell you vitrification into glass is the preferred way to prepare nuclear waste for permanent disposal. But an advocacy group in Richland, Washington, begs to differ. They are making the case that grouting is the faster, less expensive alternative for mixed low level waste which comprises 90% of the tank's contents.  Gary Petersen and Duane Schmoker of Clean Up Hanford Now argue their position in this week's episode of the Gone Fission Nuclear Report.
