While nuclear waste policy remains a hotly debated topic in Washington and the states, the U.S. Department of Energy continues its work developing the technical underpinnings of a comprehensive and nationally integrated nuclear waste management system. The DOE and its national laboratories are developing consent-based waste management facility siting processes, building a national transportation infrastructure for large-scale nuclear waste transportation, and creating innovative tools and technologies for integrated system support through extended storage, subsequent transportation, and final disposal. The panelists will discuss various DOE-sponsored activities, including consent-based siting approaches; system analyses to evaluate the integrated approach for transport, storage, and disposal; investigation of interim storage options and facility designs; planning for transportation of radioactive materials with stakeholder interactions (including states and tribes); and prototype railcar development and testing.
