Shipping Vermont Yankee’s LLW: Lessons for transporting used fuel
The rapid changes in the nuclear energy industry over the last decade, driven in part by fluctuating energy market prices and an aging fleet of reactors, have led to the closure of multiple reactors in the United States and other countries. These closures have increased the need for larger and more efficient ways to manage low-level radioactive waste processing and transport capacities. The safe transport of radioactive material is a key component of the overall nuclear industry reliability. Though sometimes perceived as a bottleneck and costly, it is necessary to send waste material to disposal.
Edited by Dr. Farzad Rahnema, Nuclear Science and Engineering (NSE) is the first and oldest peer-reviewed journal in its field, published by ANS since 1956. Printed twelve times a year, NSE is widely recognized as an outstanding source of information on fundamental and applied research in all scientific areas related to the peaceful use of nuclear energy, as well as on applications of nuclear particles and radiation.
Authors: Publication of articles in NSE is free of charge. Optionally, open access publication is available for a fee.
Information for Readers
Electronic access to Nuclear Science and Engineering is free for all ANS members.
