From Hades in Belgium to the cave in Finland
In an underground test site in Belgium ("Hades"), possibilities are being tested to safely store the hazardous waste. Especially the toxic, radioactive fuel rods need special treatment. The first repository for high-level radioactive waste from nuclear power plants is currently being built in Finland. "Onkalo", translated hiding place or cave, reaches up to 450 meters underground and consists of more than 200 tunnels.
"Onkalo" is supposed to last at least 100,000 years and be safer than a high-security prison. The uranium comes from mines such as Canada, Australia or Russia. The uranium formed into pellets is packed into fuel rods. Then they are inserted into the reactor core. Nuclear fission can begin and eventually produce energy. When the effect of the fuel rods is exhausted, they take machines out of the reactor. They are first stored underground, then transported for reprocessing or final storage.
It takes a long time for the fuel rods to become harmless. Such modern repositories as "Onkalo" make nuclear power safer, because it is thought far into the future. Nuclear energy is necessary and should be considered as a climate-friendly energy source. In view of the growing number of nuclear power plants worldwide, companies such as IsoEnergy or Fission 3.0, which possess the necessary uranium in the soil, should also be considered.
IsoEnergy - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=299169 - has uranium projects in the eastern Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan, Canada, in a particularly high-grade uranium district. In addition, the Company owns a uranium deposit in Nunavut.
Fission 3.0 - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=299215 - is also located in the Athabasca Basin with its uranium properties. The Lake North and Cree-Bay projects there are supplemented by uranium projects in Peru.
