IAEA webinar on 15 June on experiences in setting up funds for back end liabilities
The IAEA is organising a seminar on Experiences in Setting Up Funds for Back End Liabilities in Nuclear Power Programmes, which will be held on 15 June 2021 from 13.30pm to 3pm (CEST). Please register in advance using the link below.
A fundamental prerequisite for a sustainable waste management programme is the provision of financial resources to cover the costs of the programme. Developing reliable cost estimates and funding mechanisms can be challenging. Waste management does not stop when the nuclear power plant stops operating. A substantial amount of waste is generated by the decommissioning of the nuclear power plant and the disposal of high-level waste or spent fuel generated by the programme can only be done after several decades of cooling in an interim storage facility.
During this webinar, international experts will present approaches to assess the liabilities resulting from the decommissioning of nuclear power plants and the long-term management of the radioactive waste that is generated. This is followed by a presentation on the experience with setting up funds to cover these liabilities.
Moderator: Ms Aliki Van Heek, and Mr Philippe Van Marcke, both IAEA
Panelists: Mr. Simon Carroll, Vattenfall, Sweden, Mr. Chris Mydlowski, EDF Energy, UK, Mr. Johannes Blankenheim, KENFO, Germany
