ABSTRACT

The paper will provide a comparison of foreign research reactor spent fuel transportation today verses the assumptions used by the Department of Energy in the Environmental Impact Statement.  In addition, it will suggest changes that are likely to occur in transportation logistics through the remainder of the U.S. spent fuel returns program.  Cask availability, certification status, shipment strategy, cost issues, and public acceptance are among the topical areas that will be examined.  Transportation requirements will be assessed in light of current participation in the returns program and the tendency for shipment plans to shift toward spent fuel return toward the end of the 13 year period of eligibility.
