Communique on nuclear fuel cycle

A symposium of energy experts, supported by the Academy, has called for a national discussion on nuclear options, including mining, power generation and waste storage, to help address Australia's energy security and climate change challenges.

The April symposium, hosted by The Australian National University (ANU) Energy Change Institute, was also supported by the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering, and Engineers Australia.

A communique from the symposium urges governments to remove laws that may prohibit free and open discussions about the nuclear fuel cycle. The communique is based on a review of the report from the South Australian Government's Nuclear Fuel Cycle Royal Commission.
