Submission + - New "Explain This" post: Decommissioning a Nuclear Power Plant (thebulletin.org)

Lasrick 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.
