Technical Session|Panel|Sponsored by FCWMD
Thursday, December 2, 2021|3:05–4:50PM EST |Columbia 1
The Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Spent Fuel and Waste Disposition (SFWD) is conducting research and development (R&D) supporting final disposition of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) and high-level radioactive waste (HLW). SFWD has two offices: the Office of Spent Fuel & Waste Science and Technology (SFWST) and the Office of Integrated of Waste Management (IWM). In this panel session, we will discuss various SFWST sponsored activities in the national laboratory complex including (1) R&D projects supporting high-burnup, large scale, long-term storage and subsequent transportation of SNF, and (2) disposal R&D including evaluation of the feasibility of the direct disposal of dual-purpose canisters.
