The public are being asked for the views on how the radioactive waste from the new nuclear power station at Wylfa is managed and disposed of. Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is asking people for their views on Horizon Nuclear Power’s application for an environmental permit. The application is for a radioactive substances regulation permit which details how Horizon will manage, discharge, transfer and dispose of radioactive material and waste from the power station. As part of the process NRW is holding a public consultation on the content of application. It’s the first in a series of permits that the company needs to operate its planned Wylfa Newydd power station at Tregele, Anglesey. To be granted this permit Horizon must demonstrate how it will minimise the amount of radioactive waste it generates and discharges.

How the £10bn Wylfa Newydd power station would manage and dispose of nuclear waste is the subject of a consultation. It will look at how the station on Anglesey would discharge, transfer and dispose of radioactive material. Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is asking for views on Horizon’s application for an environmental permit. This only deals with radioactivity and will only be granted if NRW is “wholly satisfied” with the arrangements. The application for a radioactive substances regulation permit is another milestone on the road to building Wylfa Newydd, five years after the site near Cemaes was bought.
