Elizabeth Muller (Chief Executive Officer)

A nuclear waste disposal company that prioritizes “environmental protection and community partnerships.” It proposes directional drilling technology to manage nuclear waste by “isolating nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste in horizontal drillholes located deep underground in suitable rock formations.” In 2016, they performed a first-of-its-kind demonstration of their patented technology to 40 observers from multiple countries, and the US Department of energy, nuclear and gas industry, and other stakeholders. Their work also focuses on public and stakeholder engagement to share “best practice” and lessons learned from past experience in the field of nuclear waste disposal.
