Preparing for Nuclear Waste Transportation (September 2019)

This report is based on the Board’s review of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) research and analysis to support transporting spent nuclear fuel (SNF) and high-level radioactive waste (HLW).  The report compiles and discusses the technical and integration issues that DOE will need to address to ensure that SNF and HLW are ready for a nationwide transportation effort to a nuclear waste repository or an interim storage site.
