MAPW fact sheet: Nuclear waste Q & A, November 2011

MAPW fact sheet written by Dr Peter Karamoskos on the nature of the radioactive waste to be deposited at the proposed nuclear waste dump at Muckaty Station. This four page fact sheet debunks the myth that a central radioactive waste repository is needed for nuclear medicine. It also explains plans for two different levels of waste, and explains that more hazardous waste would be stored, rather than permanently disposed of by burial.
