Scientists find a 'deeply' safe way to dispose n-waste

Scientists have suggested a new way of safely disposing
high-emission nuclear waste -- burying it deep down into the earth. The
concept, called deep borehole disposal, has been developed primarily in England
but is likely to see its first field trials in the United States next year.
1"Deep borehole disposal is particularly suitable for high level nuclear
waste, such as spent fuel, where high levels of radioactivity and heat make
other alternatives very difficult," said professor Fergus Gibb from
University of Sheffield.
