about spent fuel waste containers Spent fuel containers are part of a system of containers used to store and ship spent nuclear fuel. The containers are designed to safely store bundles of spent fuel at plant sites, and some designs allow transport to long-term storage sites.

Discuss the integration issues known or anticipated—in particular, focus on: a. Challenges presented by the physical dimensions and capacity of the containers. b. The scope of commercial SNF types that can be loaded. c. The ability to accommodate damaged SNF (in “damaged fuel cans”). d.

with Naval spent fuel shipping container characteristics and shipping practices. • Evaluate the interactions of NNPP couriers accompanying spent fuel shipments and civilian emergency response representatives. • Gain an understanding of how communication links would be activated in an accident involving a Naval spent fuel shipment. potential materials for use in high level waste/spent fuel (HLW/SF) disposal containers. A focus of the project is the integration of the consideration of structural and corrosion degradation processes on container integrity over the long term. This document is intended.

Because of the residual hazard, spent fuel must be shipped in containers or casks that shield and contain the radioactivity and dissipate the heat.

The Safety Guide is not intended to cover the storage of spent fuel if this is part of the operation of a nuclear power plant or spent fuel reprocessing facility. Guidance is provided on all stages in the lifetime of a spent fuel storage facility, from planning through siting and design to operation and decommissioning, and in particular.
