Hazardous waste

Idaho has granted a conditional waiver to the U.S. Department of Energy that could allow research quantities of spent nuclear fuel into the state after years of blocking such shipments. The agreement announced Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019, means the Idaho National Laboratory could get spent fuel for experiments as part of a U.S. strategy to expand nuclear power.
