    Work on the Yucca Mountain Project began in the early s and lasted about three decades. In , the project was again added to President Trump's proposed budget, breathing life into repository work that had been essentially dead since Author: Emily Dunster. ARCD A Brief History of the Yucca Mountain Project iii ABSTRACT Much hope was placed on the Yucca Mountain project. To many, it seemed the only viable solution for the final storage of spent nuclear fuel that has been in temporary storage for years at DOE sites and national laboratories across the complex. File Size: KB.

      If we were to finish the Yucca Mountain Project, we could power thousands of micro-grids, and we could probably actuate the whole country with the recycled energy. This will also shorten the lifetime of the nuclear waste, f years to 30 years, . The Western Shoshone Nation is the larger overall Shoshone population that will benefit from the Health Project. The protesters are able to get a better understanding of the effects of exposure to radiation. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) DOE is the government agency that is conducting the investigation of the Yucca Mountain Site.

    Strip away all the rhetoric and slanted studies, and it becomes clear that the Yucca Mountain project has little to do with public safety, or security, or even the lack of storage capacity at. THE YUCCA MOUNTAIN PROJECT By Jeffrey O. Smith Kai Erikson argues that radiation and other forms of radioactive waste are a new species of trouble (Erikson, ). Nuclear waste disposal is a pressing issue of extreme importance. Nuclear waste is material that either contains a radioactive substance or has been contaminated by radioactive.
