Proponents of processing spent nuclear fuel in Arizona set up a web site to promote the idea - http://arizonanuclearsolutions.org - with a slide presentation at http://ansaz.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/aeef-powerpoint-presentation-for-arizona-nuclear-solutions.pdf. The plan calls for burying the remaining nuclear waste in salt deposits in Arizona.
State Sen. Al Melvin is the spokesman for the group and summarized the proposals at the Arizona Mining Alliance luncheon in Tucson on Friday.
AZGS has identified and characterized salt deposits in the state at the request of Legislature members but this does not constitute an evaluation by us of the potential for waste storage or an endorsement of the proposal. [Right, significant subsurface salt deposits in Arizona. AZGS]
