EU’s Oettinger Wants Plans for Nuclear Waste Storage, Welt Says

European Union Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger wants EU countries with nuclear power plants to submit plans to the regulator for how they will manage final storage of radioactive waste, Die Welt said.
The affected member states would have to detail their plans within four years after a draft law Oettinger will present tomorrow takes effect, the German newspaper said, citing an interview with the commissioner.
The law would also ban exports of nuclear waste to third party countries, Welt reported.
