Press Release

The U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board (Board) will hold a virtual public meeting on Wednesday, May 12, 2021, and Thursday, May 13, 2020, beginning at noon (Eastern Daylight Time) each day, to review information on the U.S. Department of Energy’s activities to evaluate advanced nuclear fuels including accident tolerant fuels for light water reactors and the impact of these fuels on spent nuclear fuel management and disposal.
The U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board (Board) will hold a virtual public meeting on Wednesday, May 12, 2021, and Thursday, May 13, 2021, to review information on the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) activities to evaluate advanced nuclear fuels including accident tolerant fuels for light water reactors and the impact of these fuels on spent nuclear fuel management and disposal.
The U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board will hold a virtual public meeting on Monday, July 27, 2020, and Tuesday, July 28, 2020, to review information on U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) research and development (R&D) activities related to disposal in a geologic repository of commercial spent nuclear fuel (SNF) in dual-purpose canisters (DPCs), which are designed for storage and transportation but not for disposal.
On September 23, 2019, the U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board released a Report to Congress and the Secretary of Energy on Preparing For Nuclear Waste Transportation. The report is a product of a multi-year effort, during which the Board reviewed the Department of Energy’s activities related to the eventual transportation of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste.
The report is based on presentations and discussions at the Board’s March 27, 2018, meeting on that topic held in Washington, D.C. The report records the views of experts from several countries who made presentations at the meeting on challenges intrinsic to both monitoring and waste retrieval. It also includes Board observations based on the meeting discussions.
The U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board will hold a public meeting in Idaho Falls, Idaho, on Wednesday, June 13, 2018, to review technical issues that need to be addressed before the Department of Energy (DOE) begins a nationwide effort to transport spent nuclear fuel (SNF) or high-level radioactive waste (HLW).
The U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board will hold a public meeting in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, March 27, 2018, to review information related to operational and performance confirmation monitoring of a geologic repository and retrievability of emplaced high-level radioactive waste (HLW) and spent nuclear fuel (SNF).
On December 29, 2017, the U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board released a Report to Congress and the Secretary of Energy on Management and Disposal of U.S. Department of Energy Spent Nuclear Fuel. The report is a product of three years of effort, during which the Board reviewed the Department of Energy’s (DOE) activities related to managing the inventory of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) that is under DOE control at four federal facilities, representing approximately 99% by mass of the total quantity of DOE SNF.
