  • Learn about the Waste Isolation Plant at the next Nuclear Working Group Meeting

Join the next Alaska Nuclear Energy Working Group meeting, where Steve Wagner, a manager at Sandia National Laboratory, will provide an overview of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant.

The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant is America’s only deep geologic repository for the permanent disposal of defense-generated transuranic radioactive waste left from research and production of nuclear weapons.

The Alaska Nuclear Energy Working Group is an informal group of stakeholders interested in following developments related to small nuclear energy technologies, and in providing input related to any proposed future deployment in the state. ACEP plans to host regular meetings of the working group, which will include presentations from industry and other stakeholder groups. The working group will also be called upon to provide input on future studies, as well as the development of a state roadmap.
