Discredited Global Nuclear Energy Partnership resuscitated under a new name

In October 2007 a panel of  the U.S.  National Academy of Sciences condemned the plan – the Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP) as unproven and risky, and concluded that the program, even if pursued, would not be ready in time to deal with the commercial nuclear waste accumulating at 104 U.S. commercial power reactors and the waste expected to be added from any future reactors. The U.S. Senate and Congress were unwilling to pass funds for this grandiose plan.

The GNEP languished, discredited – until now. The same plan is now resuscitated, and re-launched under a new name –   The the International Framework for Nuclear Energy Cooperation (IFNEC)
