Management and Disposal of U.S. Department of Energy Spent Nuclear Fuel (December 2017)

This report is based on the Board’s review of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) efforts to manage the spent nuclear fuel (SNF) under its control at four federal facilities.  The report records the quantities and characteristics of DOE SNF at each of the four storage sites and examines the technical issues related to DOE SNF packaging and storage that might affect continued storage, transport, and final disposal of SNF.
