What Is the Average Cost of Disposing of Nuclear Waste? Average Disposing of Nuclear Waste Price

Nuclear waste disposal will cost the US a whopping $96 billion, considering the fact that used reactor fuel is growing at the rate of over 2,000 tons per year. The commercial power reactors across America have already accumulated about 70,000 tons of the fuel at power plants in 33 states. The cost of disposing of nuclear waste may come down a little if new reactors are built. Nuclear wastes are dangerous because they are not bio-degradable and can cause serious health hazards. Harmful radioactive emissions from the waste can cause skin cancer. Nuclear waste recycling is the latest of the many disposal methods available.
