Evaluation of Technical Issues Associated with the Development of a Separate Repository for U.S. Department of Energy-Managed High-Level Radioactive Waste and Spent Nuclear Fuel (June 2015)

This report is based on the Board’s review of U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) reports and studies supporting a new DOE initiative involving the development of two mined geologic repositories: one to dispose of defense high-level radioactive waste (HLW) and possibly some DOE-managed spent nuclear fuel (SNF), and another to dispose of commercially generated HLW and SNF, together with other DOE-managed HLW and SNF. The new initiative also includes consideration of options for disposal of smaller DOE-managed waste forms in deep boreholes. In the report, the Board makes technical and scientific findings, conclusions, and recommendations related to the implementation of DOE’s new initiative.
