Germany's nuclear power plant operators are to pay more than 20 billion euros ($23 billion) into a special public fund to cover the cost of dismantling their atomic generators, a special government committee announced Wednesday.The cost of dismantling the plants and storing the waste from them is expected to cost tens of billions of euros and the operators – E.ON, RWE, Vattenfall and EnBW – have set aside 40 billion euros in their accounts for the purpose.For now, the operators have already set aside 17 billion euros in provisions to cover the waste from the plants.
