NRC schedules webinars on Holtec’s proposed New Mexico storage site
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has scheduled four webinars in late August and early September to present its draft environmental findings and receive comments on Holtec International’s proposed consolidated spent nuclear fuel storage facility in New Mexico. Webinars were previously held on June 23 and July 9.
As published in the August 13 Federal Register, the public comment webinars will be held on August 20 from 6–9 p.m., August 25 from 2–5 p.m., August 26 from 6–9 p.m., and September 2 from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. All times are Eastern. Information for the webinars is posted on the NRC’s Public Meetings webpage.

DD-DT operation could provide a significant reduction in tritium breeding requirements in high field tokamak reactors without requiring very large increases in reactor size or plasma beta. Operation with the tritium breeding requirement is of particular interest. The reduced tritium breeding requirement makes possible the use of blanket designs which might be difficult to implement in a DT reactor (for example, LiAl2O3 blankets). The reduced blanket requirement could also be used for excess tritium production. Tradeoffs between tritium breeding and plasma performance requirements are investigated. Illustrative design features are developed for devices using both resistive magnets and superconducting magnets. Parameters for the device with superconducting magnets are BT = 7 T, β = 0.063, R = 9.6 m, a = 2.4 m, γ = 0.8, and Pwall = 2.2 MW/m2.
