The Department of Energy has opened a period of public comment on a plan to support a national and international global expansion of nuclear energy.
The proposal consists of two complimentary initiatives.
One has to do with providing a “reliable international nuclear fuel services program,” which the United States and other countries with advanced nuclear programs would offer to emerging nuclear states that agree not to pursue enrichment or recycling facilities to make their own nuclear fuel.
Another aspect has to do with developing “proliferation resistant” nuclear reactors that could be used by these developing countries.
A new round of public meetings will begin across the county next month, a year later than planned, to discuss an initial version of the project that was sounded out around the country in early 2007.
The public will have 60 days to comment on the administration’s Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP), as it is assessed in a Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS), that is now available.
The Los Alamos public meeting, one of 13 in nine states and Washington, D.C., is scheduled for 7 p.m. Nov. 20 in the Hilltop House Best Western. A meeting will also be held in Roswell, N.M. on Nov. 18.
