Nuclear waste from the EU might be deposited in Eastern Europe. According to the plans considered at the level of the Union, the waste will be buried in a central underground installation, The Times informs. Eight states are currently negotiating to takeover transports and deposits of the waste: Romania, Bulgaria, Holland, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Lithuania and Slovenia.
A new meeting between the eight states is scheduled for may. The British publication announces that the projects might receive the approval of the Commission this year.
Covra director Ewoud Verhoef, the agency in charge with nuclear waste deposits in Netherlands, declared that the nuclear program in the Netherlands is small and the costs are high. He explained that a common EU solution will simplify operations.
Bulgaria and Romania have only two nuclear reactors, British journalists read while Slovenia has one which it shares with Croatia. In Slovenia, authorities are already building a small deposit.
