Confusion over nuclear wastes from small modular reactors « Antinuclear

The Argonne and Idaho national laboratories say managing waste from SMRs would have few challenges compared with traditional light water reactors. Spent fuel is thermally hot and highly radioactive, requiring remote handling and shielding.

A study led by Stanford University and the University of British Columbia says SMRs will generate more radioactive waste than conventional nuclear power plants
