The US Department of Energy (DOE) and the state of Idaho should reach a new agreement on nuclear waste and spent nuclear fuel to allow the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) to continue its research activities beyond 2035, according to the facility’s director Mark Peters.

Mr Peters told the state House’s environment, energy and technology committee that an agreement signed in 1995 and presently in force, requiring all nuclear waste and spent fuel to be out of Idaho by 2035, could jeopardise the operation of the INL in the future.
