Experience Gained from Programs to Manage High-Level Radioactive Waste and Spent Nuclear Fuel in the United States and Other Countries (April 2011)

This report explores the efforts of 13 nations to find a permanent solution for isolating high-level radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel generated within their borders. It builds on information in the Board's 2009 Survey of National Programs for Managing High-Level Radioactive Waste and Spent Nuclear Fuel. Unlike the earlier document, however, this report describes the programs and their histories and discusses inferences that can be drawn from their experiences.
