Nuclear Regulatory Commission Begins Process for New Mexico to Receive All U.S. Commercial High-Level Nuclear Waste

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission on Wednesday accepted Holtec International's application to store up to 100,000 metric tons of spent fuel rods from the more than 100 U.S. commercial nuclear reactors at a site between Carlsbad and Hobbs.
