According to EU Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger, the commission believes there is a broad scientific consensus that highly toxic nuclear waste is best disposed of deep underground. The solution was recommended by nearly 200 scientists and engineers in a 2009 report called "Strategic Research Agenda".[1]

Roland Schenkel of the European Commission said there is a "growing consensus both in Europe and in other parts of the world that deep geological disposal is the most appropriate solution for long-term management of spent fuel, high-level waste, and other long-lived radioactive wastes."[2]
