James Conca, Forbes: Australia is thinking about building a deep geologic nuclear repository that would take nuclear waste from the whole world, or at least from those countries that have no viable option for their small amount of nuclear waste. If some country, like Australia, with many viable sites for a single deep geologic repository, decided to accept nuclear waste from these small-user countries, it would solve a global problem in a very cost-effective way. The storage and subsequent deep geologic disposal of the waste from the small-user nations is not difficult at all scientifically, technically or economically – only politically.
The anti-fossil fuel, particularly anti-coal, non-profit organizations and their counterparts in the American government and the Environmental Protection Agency have caused most of Austral-Asia, Brazil, most of "Green" Europe, Russia and most of the Middle East to apply for membership in the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, China's new Coal Bank. American Environmental Policies have contributed to driving manufacturing out of the country, contributing to mass flows of dollars to China and similar countries. China now has a lot of money to invest in Third World Infrastructure Projects, including coal fired power plants, for India, etc. Anti-fossil fuel and anti-nuclear activists, organizations and their politicians claim they can stop global warming, can stop CO2 concentration from rising above 400 ppm, claim that 400 ppm is a crisis Tipping Point. It is impossible for anyone to do these things. The only thing that will be accomplished is turning back modern living standards for many people, which will mean human misery and more destruction of the environment. EFN-USA seeks to identify environmental problems that are real and solvable.
Forum for Nuclear Cooperation in Asia, FNCA, provides a report about isotope production and applications in the following countries:
Australia, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Kazaksthan, Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, The Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam
Nuclear power is a proven option for baseload electricity generation, but most reactor vendors worldwide currently offer power reactors which are too large for the Australian grid system. A market is emerging worldwide for Small Modular Reactors (SMRs), with unit sizes from 25 to 200 MWe, for supplying power in remote locations or to small electricity grids.
