The Ontario Centre for Engineering and Public Policy (OCEPP) launched its inaugural working group in
November 2012, to deal with the issue of the productive elimination of nuclear waste. As an advisory body to
PEO council, the group will provide a best practice analysis and position on the use of spent nuclear fuel,
for council’s consideration.
The group developed from OCEPP’s Policy Engagement Series seminar, Fast-neutron reactors: A wiser solution to spent nuclear fuel? held on October 18, 2012. Members include Peter Ottensmeyer, professor emeritus at the University of Toronto and the seminar speaker; OCEPP director Bernard Ennis; and PEO president Denis Dixon. The group’s initial meeting was held November 23, 2012. The October 18th presentation is available as a PDF and video recording. To access Prof. Ottensmeyer's article on fast-neutron reactors, published in OCEPP's Policy Engagement section of the the July/August 2012 issue of Engineering Dimensions, please click here.
