Listen: Final repository review APP
Today’s government decision on the final repository is being questioned from several quarters.
According to Peter Szakalos at KTH, SKB, Swedish Nuclear Fuel Management, has not taken into account the research that shows that the copper canisters can break down from the inside and crack.
The environmental organizations Naturskyddsföreningen and Greenpeace are also critical of the government’s decision and point out that more research is needed.
