Initial Site-Specific De-Inventory Report for Maine Yankee

The purpose of this report is to assist the United States (U.S.) Department of Energy (DOE) in
laying the groundwork for implementing an integrated waste management system. This includes
preparing for future large-scale transport of Spent Nuclear Fuel (SNF), High-Level Radioactive
Waste (HLW), and Greater Than Class C (GTCC) Low Level Radioactive Waste (LLW). This
report addresses the tasks, equipment, and interfaces necessary for the complete de-inventory of
the Maine Yankee (MY) independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI) site located in the

Cost Implications of an Interim Storage Facility in the Waste Management System

This report provides an evaluation of the cost implications of incorporating a consolidated interim storage facility (ISF) into the waste management system (WMS). Specifically, the impacts of the timing of opening an ISF relative to opening a repository were analyzed to understand the potential effects on total system costs.

Used Fuel Management System Architecture Evaluation, Fiscal Year 2012

In the 1990s the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) completed a number of system analyses investigating consolidated interim storage as a part of the waste management solution. These analyses are “dated” and do not reflect the present situation regarding at-reactor used nuclear fuel (UNF) management, alternatives for away from reactor management of used nuclear fuel, and alternatives for the ultimate disposal of UNF.

[AREVA] Task Order 11 – Development of Consolidated Fuel Storage Facility Concepts Report

1.0 INTRODUCTION

Under a contract with the Department of Energy (DOE), the AREVA Team has evaluated the alternatives for developing a used nuclear fuel (UNF) Consolidated Storage Facility (CSF) for UNF from US reactor plants. The study, based upon specific criteria and requirements for the US, considered numerous credible storage options and selected the one that met the needs of the country. For this task, the AREVA Team comprises AREVA, URS, Duke Energy, Dominion, and Coghill Communications, Inc.

[EnergySolutions] Task Order 11: Development of Consolidated Storage Facility Design Concepts

The “Strategy for the Management and Disposal of Used Nuclear Fuel and High-Level Radioactive Waste” report was issued by the Department of Energy (DOE) in January 2013. The strategy includes a phased, adaptive, and consent based approach to siting and implementing a comprehensive management and disposal system. It also endorses a waste management system containing a pilot interim storage facility and a full-scale interim storage facility, which prioritizes the acceptance of fuel from shut-down reactors. Required features of the system and facilities are:
