Abstract:Experiments evaluated the use of plasma tools to remotely drill and seal holes in batholith rock. A passive heat exchanger and Stirling engine electrical generation system transforms energy from holes filled with water and solid nuclear waste. 45 MWh of environmentally sustainable electricity result from storage of 1.5 million spent CANDU fuel bundles.
