According to a major stock-take of the industry by the European commission that Europe is facing a €253bn euro bill for nuclear waste management and plant decommissioning which outstrips available funds by €120bn euro.

The Guardian newspaper stated that the sum breaks down into €123bn euro for the decommissioning of old reactors and €130bn euro for the management of spent fuel, radioactive waste and deep geological disposal processes.

According to the Nuclear Illustrative Program of the Commission, only the UK had enough money ring-fenced to cover the coming financial crunch.
