Fork in the road: Will we embrace opportunities in the nuclear fuel cycle?
South Australia has engaged in a remarkable process of exploring opportunities in the nuclear fuel cycle. That dialogue may be spluttering to a halt, with our political class poised to reject the opportunities before us. Yet underlying conditions in South Australia continue to worsen, with a power sector in crisis, rising unemployment and a flight of industrialisation. Just what is at stake in this discussion? Energy researcher and environmentalist Ben Heard will review the process to date an outline what could be available to South Australia were we to integrate custodial management of used nuclear fuel with collaborative research, development and deployment of advanced nuclear technologies. Be warned, this presentation comes with a call to action: South Australia will get the future it deserves and everyone has a say in just what that will be.
