Transport of Nuclear Waste

The task of transporting the waste from a Nuclear Reactor to its eventual disposal destination is a problem that needs to be solved. The US Department of Energy currently proposes that a dedicated train be used for this purpose. This is a matter of great concern for many people, particularly those who live near the routes taken by the train. Sweden uses sea transport to move its Nuclear Power waste to disposal facilities. This appears far less controversial. There is continual research into the transport of radioactive materials. An overview of the current activities of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) with regard to transport of materials is available here.
