Well I'm not aware of that and my answer wasn't suggesting anything but helping the thread with information so I don't know really,
Maybe I'm missing something?
After expanding my thoughts you could be referring to this,
The Beijing Consensus?

I wonder if his name will be blacked out in the upcoming IG report?
Probably. But what will it matter if the word is out anyway?
They should release it unredacted and put an end to this #.
22. (U) Ms. Ann-Louise Eksborg, Director General for the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM), chaired a roundtable meeting entitled, "Licensing of Geological Repositories." Speakers included Mr. Tero Varjoranta, Director, Nuclear Waste and Materials Regulation, Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (STUK); Ms. Geraldine Danclieux, of the Autorite de Surete Nucleaire (ASN) of France; Mr. Carl-Magnus Larsson, Director, Department of Radioactive Materials, SSM, in Sweden; and Mr. William Borchardt, EDO of NRC. Each of the speakers described his or her country's experience in licensing (or attempting to license) a geological repository. Mr. Varjoranta of STUK described the licensing process undertaken in Finland, which has resulted in the Onkalo repository, currently under construction in Olkiluoto, Finland (where the first EPR reactor is now being built). The repository is being constructed in bedrock granite; in addition to favourable geological conditions, Finland's seismology is also advantageous. Waste will ultimately be stored in large canisters of nearly pure copper. The French, according to Danclieux of ASN, are currently pursuing a license for a repository, and are particularly interested in a "reversal" system, featuring five layers of reversibility. She said closure of the eventual repository, although far off in the future, will also be considered. The French National Radioactive Waste Agency (ANDRA) has performed feasibility studies, and a legislative framework has been established. In June 2006, studies focusing on complementary forms of disposal were also conducted. As France continues with the licensing process, ANS will be involved in the ongoing international dialogue on regulatory issues surrounding geological repository development.
Next to climate change, nuclear waste storage is one of the biggest generation-spanning issues facing the world.
The stakes are high; world powers like the US and the U.K get a fifth of their power from nuclear plants, while in France the share is 40 percent. This reliance makes the need for safe and sustinable storage obvious.
But it's a country with merely four plants that is pioneering long-term storage: Finland.
Onkalo, a “massive underground tomb” in Finland, has recently broken ground to store more than 6,500 tons of waste for at least 100,000 years. The Wall Street Journal has written an extensive article about the groundbreaking waste repository.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley has just dropped a sunlight grenade into the prosecution of Michael Flynn with a jaw-dropping request letter (full pdf below) to FBI Director Christopher Wray. [Judiciary Link Here]
Within the letter Chairman Grassley outlines a prior briefing from fired FBI Director James Comey to the Senate Judiciary Committee, and contrasts the false presentations of Comey -regarding Michael Flynn- against recently known evidence.
Additionally, Grassley is requesting: ♦the transcription of the phone call(s) intercepted by the FBI between Flynn and Russian Ambassador Kislyak; ♦the FD 302’s written by the FBI in their interview with Michael Flynn; ♦and testimony from Special Agent Joe Pientka, likely the second FBI agent who was partnered with Peter Strzok for the Flynn interview.
The name of the second FBI agent was previously unknown, and it’s likely Chairman Grassley outed the name for a very specific reason. This is a BIG shot across the bow.
The FBI has awarded 13 agents who were assigned to Maryland and the District one of the agency's highest honors for their roles in ending a 2007 standoff with a Prince George's County man who had threatened an armed confrontation with U.S. Capitol police.
In a ceremony last week at FBI Headquarters in the District, Director Robert S. Mueller III presented the Shield of Bravery to the agents, who were among scores of law enforcement officers who converged on a Forestville apartment where the man, Michael T. Smith, was holed up.
The agents honored for their part in ending the standoff were: Steven J. Binney, David L. Bonney, G. Joseph Bradley III, Jeffrey Cisar, Thomas E. Huegerich, Christopher Mayfield, Paul V. Miller, Kevin P. Murray (whose father accepted the award on his son's behalf), Joe Pientka III, Michael E. Saltz, Jae B. Shim, Robert B. Tucker and Kevin Vorndran. Maryland State Police Capt. Mark R. Gibbons was also awarded the FBI Shield of Bravery.
