ABSTRACT

The spent fuel elements of HEU (253 as of July 1997 and 389 as of April 2004) will be sent back to US by March 2006. In July 1997, the contract (No. DE-AC09-97SR18907) was completed between DOE and Kyoto University. One or two casks will be made in 1998 and the shipment will start in 1999. So many paper works and negotiations with the Government of Japan and the local governments have been aggressively executed by committee members of Spent Fuel Countermeasure. One of the highlights is to find a port of shipment. Technical and political problems including public acceptance are to be solved. In this paper, mainly technical matters related to spent fuel handling are described.
