Deep Isolation was founded through a passion for environmental stewardship, scientific ingenuity, and American entrepreneurship. A remarkable team of experts has been brought together to lead the way in addressing nuclear waste disposal.
Deep Isolation leverages recent advances in directional drilling to provide a safe and less expensive approach to the long term storage and disposal of nuclear waste. Rather than creating large tunnels, Deep Isolation will place nuclear waste in narrow (9 to 14-inch diameter) horizontal drillholes in rock that has been stable for millions of years. No humans need go underground.
