+ - New "Explain This" post: Decommissioning a Nuclear Power Plant->

Submitted by Lasrick
Lasrick (2629253) writes "The Bulletin has just posted an explanation of the three types of nuclear power plant decommissioning: Safe Storage, Decontamination, and Entombment, David Lochbaum of the Union of Concerned Scientists (and a whistleblower on unsafe practices in the nuclear power industry) writes a brief summary of each method, and when each can be used. Given that 4 plants have been permanently shut down already this year and that the process can cost over $500 million, it seems an important process to understand."
