Problems and Prospects for Nuclear Waste Disposal Policy

By Eric B. Herzik; Alvin H. Mushkatel | Go to book overview

The same implementation strategy for acceptance will be repeated now on a local scale. Scientific investigations to find "best" solutions are part of the plans, including consensus building by the participation of political parties and local interest groups, and a local referendum. The ultimate local arguments, however, lie in the anticipation of economic prosperity for the area. Funds for final deposition have accumulated, corresponding to 7 percent of the value of the electricity produced, which should guarantee the final feasibility of the project. There is plenty of time for study; final deposition of HLW is not scheduled to start until 2010. Eventually, however, this siting decision will demonstrate a frank trade-off between economic development and environmental concerns in the area. Or--from the harmony perspective of "the Swedish Model" ( Milner, 1989)--if accepted, the siting will be a successful compromise, demonstrating how a NIMBY syndrome may develop into an IMBY situation.
