Nuclear Waste On-Line: Nuclear Risk: Calculating the Incredible
In our February 18th session, presenter Shawn-Patrick Stensil, a nuclear analyst with Greenpeace Canada, will debunk the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commissions (CNSC) approach to risk assessment. The danger of accidents, malfunctions or terrorist attacks at a nuclear facility remains one of the defining features of nuclear power generation because such events have the potential to create catastrophic and irreversible harm. Typically, the CNSC deems certain levels estimated risk acceptable to Canadians. These are based on accidents that would not result in radioactive material leaving the plant boundaries. Accident risks beyond this level of risk are deemed incredible and are not considered within environmental assessments conducted by the CNSC even if those risks would resullt in catastrophic environmental damage.

Judging Geological Repositories: How Different Countries Evaluate Nuclear Waste Burial
Friday, March, 1 2013
2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (Eastern Time)
Judging Geological Repositories: How Different Countries Evaluate Nuclear Waste Burial
In the lingo of nuclear waste burial, the “safety case” is the technical explanation of why a particular design in a particular rock formation will actually contain the radioactive wastes for a predicted period of time. This workshop will compare how different countries intend to assess the ability of a proposed deep geological repository to contain the nuclear hazards over time.
