Additional Info:  Drinks and canapés will be available after the discussion in the Lower Library.  The event will finish at 9pm.

The safe disposal of high-level radioactive waste has been well researched and the international consensus is that deep geological repositories are the preferred method. Only a handful of countries however – Finland, Sweden, France and the US - have started building permanent storage facilities. 

The panel will be chaired by Simon Redfern, Professor of Mineral Physics and Head of Department. Simon is a member of the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management providing independent advice to the UK Government on long-term management of radioactive waste, including storage and disposal. 

Our panellists include Dr Ian Farnan, Reader in Earth and Nuclear Materials; Dr Nigel Woodcock, Emeritus Reader and Dr Liz Harvey (Jesus 2003), Senior Consultant at  Galson Sciences Ltd.
