Deployment Options for A Spent Fuel Treatment Facility in the United States

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A promising alternative to direct disposal is to process the commercial spent nuclear fuel into key partitions permitting recovery of some of the energy value while providing vital flexibility to the operation of a repository in a manner to minimize and possibly defer the near-term need for future repositories. It is assumed that such a Spent Fuel Treatment Facility (SFTF) will provide significant benefit to the US nuclear waste program and this paper focuses on key options for deployment of such a facility. The SFTF would partition the spent fuel into manageable components that could be recovered, recycled, or dispositioned ... continued below

Description

A promising alternative to direct disposal is to process the commercial spent nuclear fuel into key partitions permitting recovery of some of the energy value while providing vital flexibility to the operation of a repository in a manner to minimize and possibly defer the near-term need for future repositories. It is assumed that such a Spent Fuel Treatment Facility (SFTF) will provide significant benefit to the US nuclear waste program and this paper focuses on key options for deployment of such a facility. The SFTF would partition the spent fuel into manageable components that could be recovered, recycled, or dispositioned as economically beneficial to the overall fuel cycle and/or enhances the repository performance. The goal of the SFTF is to reduce the high level waste volume going to a repository, provide for more effective heat management, enhance the containment performance of the specific waste forms, and provide for energy recovery or transmutation as practical.
