Socio-technical evaluation of long-term spent nuclear fuel management options: The case of San Onofre, California
In the absence of a federal geologic repository or consolidated, interim storage in the United States, commercial spent fuel will remain stranded at some 75 sites across the country. Currently, these
Socio-technical multi-criteria evaluation of long-term spent nuclear fuel management strategies: A framework and method.


The geochemical behaviour of Tc, Np and Pu in spent nuclear fuel in an oxidizing environment
Abstract Spent fuel from commercial nuclear reactors consists mainly of uranium oxide. However, the changes that occur during reactor operations have a profound effect on chemical and physical
Nuclear Fuel in a Reactor Accident
The state of knowledge on the chemical and physical processes following the nuclear reactor accident is reviewed and how these results may inform decision-making during future events are considered, and priorities for research needed to develop future predictive models are discussed.
Reducing the Hazards from Stored Spent Power-Reactor Fuel in the United States
Because of the unavailability of off-site storage for spent power-reactor fuel, the NRC has allowed high-density storage of spent fuel in pools originally designed to hold much smaller inventories.
Spent Nuclear Fuel
The primary waste form resulting from nuclear energy production is spent nuclear fuel (SNF). There are a number of different types of fuel, but they are predominantly uranium based, mainly UO 2 or,
Radionuclide behaviour in the near-field of a geological repository for spent nuclear fuel
Abstract Even though chemical processes related to the corrosion of spent nuclear fuel in a deep geological repository are of complex nature, knowledge on underlying mechanisms has very much improved
Technical and social problems of nuclear waste
Despite decades of effort, the nuclear industry does not yet have a working solution for managing spent fuel and high level waste, the most radioactive products generated by nuclear power plants.
