Opportunities for the Nuclear Waste Negotiatorby James H. Carlson, U.S. Dep of Energy, United States,
Alyson Emanuel, U.S. Dep of Energy, United States,
Abstract: The Nuclear Waste Negotiator (the Negotiator) has the potential to have a significant positive impact on the United States High-level Radioactive Waste Management program perhaps more than any other single individual or organization. The 1987 Amendments to the Nuclear Waste Policy Act have given the Negotiator tremendous flexibility to seek and enter into negotiations with parties interested hosting a repository or monitored retrievable storage (MRS) facility. The Department of Energy (the Department) believes that the Negotiator can provide an unparalleled opportunity for this nation to obtain waste management facility sites without the difficulties that the Department has previously encountered its siting efforts.
