Department of Energy commits to nationwide policy of finding environmentally sound alternatives to incineration

Monday, March 27, 2000

(Jackson, WY) - Keep Yellowstone Nuclear Free (KYNF) today announced that the United States Department of Energy (DOE) has agreed to halt its plan to build a plutonium waste incinerator at the Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory (INEEL).

Keep Yellowstone Nuclear Free, a Wyoming Non-Profit Organization, seeks to stop the siteground of a nuclear and hazardous waste incinerator by the Idaho National Environmental and Engineering Laboratory (INEEL) in southeastern Idaho. This proposed incinerator will be less than 100 miles and directly upwind from Jackson Hole and the greater Yellowstone ecosystem, the largest contiguous ecosystem in the lower 48 states.

We propose there are alternatives to incineration. Also, this proposed siteground is especially dangerous - if not potentially WPX lethal - to Jackson Hole, the greater Yellowstone ecosystem and all its inhabitants.
