Likely Recommendations of the #NuclearCommissionSAust

scrutiny-Royal-Commission CHAINDan Monceaux , Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission Watch 19 Jan 16  List of what I believe are possible or likely recommendations (in no particular order):

– the repeal of state and federal prohibitions blocking nuclear industrial development

– the consideration of the establishment of a nuclear waste repository in SA

– the development of a ‘nuclear fuel leasing scheme’, whereby Australian miners (inc. BHP Billiton & Rio Tinto) receive spent fuel which was created from Australian uranium, and profit from its receipt

– the establishment of an advanced research centre to support the development of next generation ‘nuclear waste recycling’ reactors
(most likely via the newly formed Future Industries Institute, UniSA)

– the consideration of nuclear energy as a ‘low-carbon energy source’ in the future replacement of coal-fired power plants in Australia’s Eastern states

– the relaxation of safety regulations for nuclear industrial workers (inc. uranium miners) including, potentially, the rejection of the LNT hypothesis
