The Long Term Storage Paradigm
#1
New form of uranium found that could affect nuclear waste disposal plans

Research shows underground storage can create new compound of element which could affect groundwater


Paradigm from article. --> "The study shows that uranium passes through this previously unknown chemical form under environmental conditions by binding to sulphur atoms that can dissolve as it is immobilised. About 1 to 2% of the uranium passes into solution for a couple of hours during the process.

The UK government’s Radioactive Waste Management (RWM) group says this does not mean the radioactive substances would no longer be properly contained. They said they welcomed the clarity provided by the results, and that the newly discovered form passes too briefly to raise their concerns." <--
