Nuclear waste

The Commonwealth Radioactive Waste Repository - MAPW fact sheet. 2010

An MAPW fact sheet about the proposed Northern Territory Nuclear waste dump at Muckaty Station. The fact sheet explains the types of radioactive material that will be stored in the repository, and debunks the myth that the dump is needed for disposal of medical radioactive waste.

MAPW has noted with concern the announcement by Energy Minister Martin Ferguson that the Australian Government will pursue Muckaty Station in the Northern Territory as the preferred site for a nuclear waste dump. MAPW President, Dr Bill Williams, refuted Mr Ferguson's claim that the dump was needed for disposal of radioactive medical waste.
