Conceptual design considerations for the storage of solidified high-level waste in canisters at a commercial fuel reprocessing plant

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Onsite storage of canisters of solidified high-level waste generated by the commercial fuel reprocessing plants (FRP) may be required prior to shipping these canisters to a Federal repository. The most likely storage concept is to hold the waste-filled canisters in water storage basins. In the Retrievable Surface Storage Facility conceptual design studies, air-cooled and water-cooled storage of solidified high-level wastes has been considered. The studies of water-cooled storage included design considerations, as part of the conceptual design of the canisters and water storage basins, that would apply also to the conceptual design of similar facilities at an FRP. These similar ... continued below

The studies of water-cooled storage included design considerations, as part of the conceptual design of the canisters and water storage basins, that would apply also to the conceptual design of similar facilities at an FRP. These similar considerations include: types of corrosion likely to develop on canisters stored in water, conditions that promote stress corrosion cracking (SCC), prevention of SCC, routine basin water cleanup, cleanup of a grossly contaminated water basin, effluent discharge discussions, storage basin integrity, and designing for decommissioning.
