This comparative study on the radiological impacts of spent nuclear fuel management options was launched by the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) at the request of the OSPAR Commission in The main objectives of the study were to compile the most recent data and information on.

With this in mind, the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) has undertaken Radiological Impacts of Spent Nuclear Fuel Management Options book comparative study of the radiological impacts of two main fuel cycle options: one with and one without reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel.

The study compares the respective impacts of the two options based on generic models and assumptions as well as actual data.

This publication will contribute to further improvement of the INPRO (International Project on Innovative Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cycles) methodology for sustainability assessment of nuclear energy systems (NESs) and can help Member States applying this methodology to perform a NES assessment in the areas of safety and environment.

In book: Radioactive effluents from nuclear power stations and nuclear fuel reprocessing plants in the European Community primarily for radiological impact assessment purposes in.

Managing the spent fuel arising from nuclear power plants until its disposal is an important step of the nuclear fuel cycle and constitutes the so-called back-end.

While one third of the spent fuel accumulating globally is reprocessed, most of it is stored until a decision is taken on the end-point strategy (processing or disposal). Get this from a library. Radiological impacts of spent nuclear fuel management options: a comparative study.

waste do not recognize the importance of the technological options to reduce the radiological toxicity, which could have great impact on waste management. One of the main Study recommendations is: “Planning for long term interim storage of spent fuel – on the scale of a century – should be an integral part of nuclear fuel cycle design.”.

Although dry casks have advantages over cooling pools, pools are necessary at all operating nuclear power plants to store at least the recently discharged fuel.

The book explains it would be difficult for terrorists to steal enough spent fuel to construct a significant radiological dispersal device.

Interim Storage of Spent Nuclear Fuel Behältermodell CASTOR V/ Source: GNS Gesellschaft für Nuklear-Service mbH. Interim storage is a temporary solution that plays a central role in the management of the most highly radioactive materials: spent nuclear fuel and vitrified waste resulting from reprocessing such spent nuclear fuel is compact, plant operators are able to store fuel.

office of the secretary correspondence control ticket date printed: paper number: action office: ltr edo logging date: 08/23/   Environmental remediation aims to reduce radiation exposure from contaminated soil, waste storage facilities or other contaminated infrastructure, groundwater or surface water.

Its purpose is to return affected lands and water resources for safe public use. Nuclear regulators and operators of. INTRODUCTION. Technical studies sponsored by DOE and NRC (Refs. 1,2, 3, 4, 5) have identified three aspects of spent nuclear fuel(SNF) and high-level radioactive waste(HLW) transportation which could result in increased radiation exposures to transportation workers, members of the general public, and emergency response personnel: 1) during routine transportation operations, gamma and neutron.

Energy (DOE) has since established the Office of Integrated Waste Management (IWM), which builds on the work begun by NFST, to develop an integrated waste management system for spent nuclear fuel (SNF), including the development of a large-scale transportation system for the safe transport of SNF to storage or disposal facilities.

All civilian NPPs contain storage facilities for spent nuclear fuel and, with few exceptions, all of the spent fuel produced by those reactors is being stored at the sites where it was produced. Approximat metric tons of spent fuel are currently stored under water in large spent fuel storage pools for cooling and shielding purposes.

This report contains a review of publicly available information on SNF transportation worldwide, including estimates of the number of shipments of SNF made fromand the quantity of material shipped.

In addition, it investigates transportation incidents, with a case study of a historical severe accident, and a review of past analyses conducted to estimate the risks in transporting SNF.

More thanmetric tons of commercial spent nuclear fuel is held in storage worldwide, most at reactor sites. Political and technical difficulties have delayed and in many cases, prevented the construction and operation of geologic repositories to dispose of this material.

The book finds that successful terrorist attacks on spent fuel pools, though difficult, are possible. A propagating fire in a pool could release large amounts of radioactive material, but rearranging spent fuel in the pool during storage and providing emergency water spray systems would reduce the likelihood of a propagating fire even under.

Separation processes for highly radioactive and chemically complex spent nuclear fuel require advanced safe technologies and process models based on large databases. Availability of advanced methodologies for on-line control and safeguarding of aqueous reprocessing flowsheets will accelerate implementation of the closed nuclear fuel cycle.

Spent Fuel Storage Casks Once the spent fuel has cooled, it is loaded into special canisters which are designed to hold Pressured Water Reactor or Boiling Water Reactor assemblies. Canisters are filled with inert gas, welded, and rigorously tested for leaks.

It may. Contextualising the impact of used nuclear fuels management. It is important to compare the environmental impacts of nuclear waste management with those of front-end activities (e.g. mining and enrichment) to evaluate contributions to the overall impact of the nuclear fuel cycle.

After a yr cooling time, the thermal output of the HLW arising from advanced fuel cycles is significantly lower than that of spent fuel.

This allows the dimensions of the geological repository to be reduced. The impact of advanced fuel cycles on the radiological consequences in the case of the expected evolution scenario is rather limited. @article{osti_, title = {Analysis of Radiological Impacts to Terrestrial Biota in Support of Environmental Assessment for Use of DOE-Owned High-Assay Low-Enriched Uranium Stored at Idaho National Laboratory}, author = {Case, Marilyn J.

A series of value/impact studies were performed for accident preventive and mitigative options intended to reduce the risks posed by the storage of spent fuel at nuclear power plants in spent fuel storage pools.

The German government recently passed a law making it illegal to transport spent nuclear fuel to reprocessing plants in France and the United Kingdom after J However, there is no legal restriction concerning the transport of spent fuel from power reactors to other destinations (e.g., to dry storage facilities).
