EnergySolutions Inc. wants to import up to 20,000 tons of low-level radioactive waste from Italy. After processing in Tennessee, about 1,600 tons would be disposed of in Utah.

15,000 protest nuclear waste in Germany

Close to 15,000 protesters, including farmers on tractors, protested against a shipment of reprocessed nuclear waste on November 8 as the waste traveled by train from France to the Goerleben storage site in Germany. Opponents chained themselves to the railway tracks while farmers blocked the road to the storage site. The irradiated reactor fuel is sent to France or Britain for reprocessing then returned to Germany.
