Repository benefits of AFCI options.

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The results described in this report summarize the evaluations of potential benefits to a geologic repository for a variety of AFCI options that were studied during FY04. Many of the options were examined in response to a request by Burton Richter, chair of the Advanced Nuclear Transformation Technology (ANTT) Subcommittee of NERAC, to perform an initial evaluation of the potential benefit to a geologic repository from processing commercial spent nuclear fuel to separate certain chemical elements and to recycle some of these elements in thermal spectrum reactors such as light water reactors. The measure of repository benefit has been defined ... continued below

Description

The results described in this report summarize the evaluations of potential benefits to a geologic repository for a variety of AFCI options that were studied during FY04. Many of the options were examined in response to a request by Burton Richter, chair of the Advanced Nuclear Transformation Technology (ANTT) Subcommittee of NERAC, to perform an initial evaluation of the potential benefit to a geologic repository from processing commercial spent nuclear fuel to separate certain chemical elements and to recycle some of these elements in thermal spectrum reactors such as light water reactors. The measure of repository benefit has been defined as the allowable increase in repository drift loading consistent with satisfying all repository thermal design limits, since loading of a geologic repository at Yucca Mountain is currently limited by temperature constraints. Such an increase in drift loading can be used to either reduce the size of a repository of given capacity, or to increase the capacity of a repository of a given size. Any changes in estimated peak dose caused by the resulting alteration in the radionuclide inventory of the repository have not been evaluated, but are the subject of a separate ongoing study.
