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.

The HANBIT device is a non axi-symmetric mirror being operated as a national users’ facility. Plasmas are routinely produced by ICRF at 3.5 MHz with a slot antenna with gas puffing and the line-integrated densities are in the range between 2×1012 and 1×1014 cm–2. The pulse length is normally 250 msec, but higher wall recycling happened usually after 100 msec into the discharge. Characterization and application of various methods of wall conditioning have been performed. Ion heating had been tried by RF with a double half-turn antenna, however, the heating effects were vaguely seen. Optimum heating schemes have been actively pursued with different heating method and antenna types. RF-induced electric fields have been known to affect the plasma stability. This effect of RF on stability seems important in HANBIT because of lacking of stabilizing mechanisms such as the minimum-B effect and the line-tying effect. In addition, stabilization by a hot electron ring generation and by other methods is being pursued. Detailed experimental results on these topics will be presented.
