Just switched energy supply from OVO (mostly renewables and suddenly horrendously expensive) to EDF (cheapest of the Big 5 and mostly nuclear).

Nothing - it's harmless. For a small fee they can come and bury it in a hole in my back garden if they wish.

Nothing needs doing.

The waste heat itself is actually useful in that context, and if stuck nect to a coal fired powerstation using metal oxide reduction to generate a stream of pure CO2, thet could be recycled back as synthetic hydrocarbon fuel.. a coal to oil route not used before
The problem with making hydrocarbon fuel is where to get the carbon. The atmosphere is short of it really. Plants need more
