9. Existing Nuclear Waste

What are the implications for the management of existing nuclear waste of taking a decision to allow energy companies to build new nuclear power stations?

Some of the new reactors must be fast reactors that will burn the spent fuel accumulated to date from thermal reactors. That is the most advantageous means for exploiting this spent fuel treasure. Today's spent fuel must not be buried; it must not become difficult to retrieve it for use in fast reactors.
