Case for nuclear dump ‘optimistic’

THE case for a nuclear waste storage facility in South Australia has been built on optimistic assumptions, according to research released yesterday.

A royal commission that is investigating the proposal for the storage facility has suggested those companies will pay $1.75 million per tonne of waste stored.

The new report says those firms may not be willing to pay that much.
