through decay with time, and that there currently is no permanent solution to either dispose of or store this waste, one can only imagine the future that awaits us, unless a permanent solution is presented to either reduce or dispose of this waste. 


If we were to add up all the stored and unprocessed HLW in the world from the year 2004 until and including the year 2012, there would be approximately 3,330,638.4 (m3) of HLW. Taking into account that plutonium-239 has a half-life of 24,000 and uranium-238 has a half-life of 4.5 billion years the need for processing this waste rather than storing it – especially since more is produced annually – should become one of our priories. Since we have yet to find any manmade device, product, or site that has lasted 24,000 years not to mention the 4.5 billion for some radioactive elements to decay, we need to find a solution immediately. We must also take into account that HLW is not easy to store and is prone to accidents that can have devastating outcomes. 


Greenuke Technology came into existence in part to help secure the welfare of future generations by reducing nuclear waste and preserving nuclear energy. Our innovative technology can drastically reduce the amount of HLW by a ratio of at least 2,000:1. To learn more about our innovative technology click here.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reports that in the year 2012 the nuclear power generating facilities worldwide produced about 370,576.3 (m3) of unprocessed high-level waste (HLW). Considering that HLW is highly radioactive, and that it only becomes harmless
