Dry Cask Inventory Assessment, Rev. 1

The report, Commercial Spent Nuclear Fuel and High-Level Radioactive Waste Inventory Report(FCRD-NFST-2013-000263, Rev.3), provides information on the inventory of commercial spent fuel, referred to in this report as used nuclear fuel (UNF), as well as Government-owned UNF and High Level Waste (HLW) in the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) complex. Inventory forecasts for commercial UNF were made for a few selected scenarios of future commercial nuclear power generation involving the existing reactor fleet including one scenario involving reactors under construction.

Multipurpose Canister System Design Synopsis Report

The multipurpose canister (MPC) concept can simplify the management of spent nuclear fuel by enclosing the fuel permanently in a canister that can be used for long-term dry storage at a utility site, transportation to an interim federal storage facility, and eventual disposal in a repository. This synopsis report summarizes the key design and analysis features of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) MPC program.

Stakeholder Involvement in Decision Making: A Short Guide to Issues, Approaches and Resources

Radioactive waste management is embedded in broader societal issues such as the
environment, risk management, energy, health policy and sustainability. In all
these fields, there is an increasing demand for public involvement, participation
and engagement. Involvement may take different forms at different phases and
can include sharing information, consulting, dialoguing or deliberating on
decisions with relevant stakeholders. Stakeholder involvement should be seen as a

CISF Topical Safety Analysis Report Volumes 1 and 2

The Centralized Interim Storage Facility (CISF) is designed as a temporary, above-ground away-from-reactor spent fuel storage installation for up to 40,000 metric tons of uranium (MTU). The design is non-site-specific but incorporates conservative environmental and design factors (e.g., 360 mph tornado and 0.75 g seismic loading) intended to be capable of bounding subsequent site-specific factors. Spent fuel is received in dual-purpose canister systems and/or casks already approved for transportation and storage by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC).

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.

A Project Concept for Nuclear Fuels Storage and Transportation

The Department of Energy (DOE) issued its Strategy for the Management and Disposition of Used
Nuclear Fuel and High-Level Radioactive Waste in January 2013. DOE undertook studies and analyses
to determine systems and design concepts as a preliminary step to further defining systems, equipment,
and facilities to implement the Strategy. This report uses the work performed by industry and national
laboratories and configures system components to meet the requirements of the Strategy. The project

[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:
