Nuclear Waste Disposal

India Considers Joining GNEP
10 February 2006

HINDUSTAN TIMES (NEW DELHI)-On the face of it, the US invitation to India to join the so-called Global Nuclear Energy Partnership, or GNEP, is worth considering. Provided Washington manages to clear its own domestic hurdles. Reprotedly, the US Undersecretary of Energy David Garman made the offer during meetings last Wednesday in meetings with Foreign Secretary Shyam Saran in New Delhi.

Comment: The idea behind GNEP is to create a new worldwide nuclear power system in which a group of supplier countries provides nuclear fuel and technology to another set of user countries. The GNEP would give energy-starved countries nuclear fuel for generating power, and take back the dangerous nuclear waste.
