but storing waste that can remain radioactive for centuries is a big problem. finland is pioneering. a system which it says can permanently contain all its spent nuclear material and to some communities. it's a welcome financial boost. our correspondent terry shields went to west and finland to find out more. who wants to live next to a new clear sight? well, this guy for one, and evidently most of the other, some 9000 residents of the town of error yaki finland. it's the proud home to 3 nuclear reactors and opening soon, the world's 1st permanent storage site for high level radioactive waste. rigate there are realistic purchase. it's about $20000000.00 per year. erie okey mayor vessel luck in him. he says, decades of good relations and no accidents. with the okey lu, auto nuclear power plant led his community to actively campaign to be chosen also as the location for the uncle repository. the facility is being called
7:06 pm
a game changer and the nuclear power industry because the waste is deposited so deep in the earth. it will never have to be moved located near me, considers that a win for his town, long term financial security. we have no way to school son ari ongoing. so realtor, her sports hall here at school support 1000000 euros. the economic boost from the nuclear industry is welcome, but embracing its waste requires deep trust in expertise and authority, part of the bedrock of thinner society. thanks to that and the unique suitability of the actual finish bedrock. this country is making history, half a kilometer below ground. welcome to call them. when the site becomes operational. within the next couple of years, the spent nuclear fuel will be transferred into steel canisters and then copper capsules lowered into tunnels and sealed off forever. at the moment the uncle
7:07 pm
o site is still in its trial phase, as experts continue finalizing the details of permanently disposing of spent nuclear fuel with such high level radioactive waste, there is no room for miss steps. looked good geologist, johan hanson says every precaution has been taken to ensure that also in the far future that there are no any, any pathways enchilada surf a so. so this facility will store at canisters 400000 of years though the project has been underway under ground for almost 2 decades. it's getting new interest from abroad. that's due in part to the european parliament designation of nuclear power as a green fuel. and the push in europe to reduce dependence on russia as an energy supplier, as it wages war on ukraine. so uncle is getting lots of attention these days and not only from scientists and journalists, $17000.00 people per year,
7:08 pm
come to see this interactive visitor's center and take a tour of the facility posse to him, a heads up communications for pussy by the company. responsible for all gallo, he says his goal is to demystify the process of nuclear power generation. a lot of people say that, okay, and nuclear is good, but then you have this a waste of used nuclear fuel bubble. would all what we're saying is that not that's not true, or we do have the solution for that is completely safe to a he my says he expects more european countries to follow finland's lead. now that they're forced to reconsider how to power their futures, not for most communities, even hearing the words nuclear waste facility would be enough to make them say no, thank you. so what's behind these fins campaign? i put that question to the woman who filed that report. terry schultz. yeah, this is pretty remarkable, isn't it? rebecca?
7:09 pm
not only did they not say not in my backyard, they said, please in my backyard and communities were competing to have this permanent storage facility as well. as other nuclear reactors in their communities, exactly. for this reason, you have a long term income for a community that may not have a lot of other ways to make that kind of money. but it's not that superficial. they also believe that this is a safe technology. there is a really a lot of outreach from the facility itself to reassure people that, that they will be safe. and that's why everybody wanted it in their backyard, anathema to a general opinion. you could even say in the safety aspect is of course key to this . we know that nuclear waste remains dangerous for a very, very long time. how can the finish experts be so sure that they won't be leakage? of course, that is a question that no one can prove at this point there. they're promising that this will be safe for
7:10 pm
a 100000 years. so they also won't be around for the consequences if it's not. but i would point out that this, this site has been under excavation for 2 decades. there's been a lot of time to test the rock to make sure that it's not poorest to test that canisters that the nuclear waste is going to be put in the ben tonight clay that it's going to be sealed in. and they firmly believed that there is no better way, no safer way to store nuclear waste for hundreds of thousands of years. and that again is what has been communicated each step of the way. and that's why people are trusting in this process, and people are willing to take the what might be a very, very small risk. given the reassurance is that they've received. it is such a small risk and then truly the answer if you will, to safe permanent storage. why isn't it being used in other countries? well, it takes a long time to put this site into operation. even when they say that uncle of this site is almost ready, that means 3 more years of testing before they are going to go ahead and launch the
7:11 pm
storage process just to be sure, but stay tuned on this. because as, as i mentioned, countries are looking for alternative sources of energy to russian dependence. and sweden has just decided that it's going to be us build a site just like this based on the same technology. and that was after a decade ago, swedish researchers weren't so sure they've continue looking at the, the suitability of these copper canisters and decided that they will trust in this process. and i would expect, and i heard from the people at the uncle of site as well, that they're getting a lot of phone calls. countries interested in finding out if this is a suitable solution for them to store permanent nuclear waste. if they start to turn towards nuclear power, as a more reliable and even green energy source, rebecca kerry, as always, thank you for your reporting date of it is terry schultz from brussels bureau. let's take a look at some of the other stories making headlines around the world. now. a lawyer for a former russian state tv journalist, marina of santa cova,
