Storing of spent fuel from Test
Reactor in developing countries has become a big dilemma for the following
of spent fuel is very expensive.
There are no
reprocessing plants in most developing countries.
The expanding of existing storage facilities in reactor building require
experience that most of developing countries lack.
motivations from Nuclear Developed countries intervene which makes the
transportation procedures and logistics to those countries difficult.
This paper gives the conceptual
design of a new spent fuel storage now under construction at Inshass research
reactor (ET-RR-1). The location of the new storage facility is chosen to be
within the premises of the reactor facility so that both reactor and the new
storage are one Material Balance Area.
The paper also proposes some ideas
that can enhance the transportation and storage of spent fuel of test reactors,
role of IAEA in helping countries to get rid of the spent fuel.
The initiation of
regional spent fuel storage facilities in some developing countries.
