The Bottom Line – (Air date: May 3, 2016) Safe storage of hazardous nuclear waste is an enormous problem in the U.S. Options for long-term storage of nuclear waste are very limited. The U.S. continues to generate waste from nuclear power plants across the country which demands extremely cautious disposal. Managing this problem makes for a unique business for Utah-based Energy Solutions. Recently Host Doug Wells spoke to Greg Wood, the Chief Financial Officer of Energy Solutions. The company is the country’s largest nuclear waste firm and employs more than 4,000 people. The U.S. has only three commercial landfills for nuclear waste, and Energy Solutions’ site in Utah’s West Desert in Tooele County is the nation’s busiest. Prior to going private in 2013, Energy Solutions reported revenues of just under $2B dollars. Wood talks about his experiences with managing the company’s finances.
