Nuclear Spent Fuel Disposal/Storage technology in Sweden is at a very well developed stage. Sweden is one of those countries that is transitioning away from nuclear fuel.
Japan has shut down all but one of their 54 nuclear plants as of April 2012. The local residents no longer want nuclear power but on the industry side, pressure is mounting to restart all reactors.
Italy had four operating nuclear power reactors but shut down the last two operating nuclear plants following the Chernobyl accident. http://www.world-nuclear.org/info/inf101.html
Lithuania shut down it’s only nuclear power plant. http://youtu.be/yXTtAsGO8as
Is it possible that the Swiss are learning from the hard lessons experienced by millions of Japanese, Russian and US residents, and applying them preventatively?
In the following video entitled; Nuclear Power 101: Fairewinds Examines the Fundamental Advantages and Disadvantages of Splitting Atoms to Boil Water.
Included in this presentation is a discussion of how nuclear power plants work, how to cool a reactor during an accident, the effect of hot particles when inhaled, and concerns involving the long-term storage of nuclear waste. This presentation took place at the Nuclear Power Conference held at the University of Vermont July 23, 2011.
