NRC advisors give nod to Hermes construction permit
Having completed its review of the construction permit application for Kairos Power’s Hermes test reactor early last month, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Advisory Committee on Reactor Safeguards (ACRS) recently submitted its conclusions to the agency, recommending approval.

For a spent fuel repository, the possible application of the concepts of a multilayer repository with a two- or three-story disposal tunnel and a multicanister repository in which two or three canisters are emplaced in a deposition hole is assessed from the viewpoint of temperature, mechanical stability, and nuclear criticality. The results show that the concepts of multilayer and multicanister repositories are applicable to the geological repository without deterioration of the mechanical stability and nuclear criticality safety. Their adoption in the spent fuel repository can improve the disposal density up to 200% to 400% depending on the applied peak temperature limit under the given thermal constraint and site conditions.
