Darlington New Build Joint Review Panel

OPG is seeking approval to build up to four new nuclear reactors at the Darlington site, but Ontario has not yet specified which type of reactor technology will be utilized, nor has Ontario quantified the multi-billion dollar cost of the OPG proposal. It is also unclear whether the high level radioactive waste (i.e. used fuel rods) from the new reactors will be stored at the Darlington site, or at OPG’s proposed (but unapproved) Deep Geologic Repository near Kincardine, Ontario. This is a collection of information related to the work CELA is doing on this matter.
