John Emerson’s Submission to #NuclearCommissionSAust – wants a BHP waste dump

scrutiny-Royal-Commission CHAINJohn Emerson  wants BHP to set up a nuclear waste dump –  a pity that BHP has ruled this out in its own Submission :

BHP Billiton does not handle or manage intermediate and high-level radioactive wastes. Nevertheless we understand that current thinking is toward long term storage rather than disposal, as it is foreseeable that the contained energy may be able to be harnessed in the future. Irrespective of whether storage or disposal is preferred, BHP Billiton considers that either option would be inconsistent with our core business of mining and the production of high quality copper and associated by-products at Olympic Dam.
