Title: Aluminum Clad Spent Nuclear Fuel Long Term Dry Storage Technical Issues Action Plan - Technical and Engineering Activities

Abstract

The DOE Spent Nuclear Fuel Working Group (SNFWG)’s report on technical considerations and challenges for extended dry storage of aluminum-clad spent nuclear fuel (ASNF) entitled, Aluminum-Clad Spent Nuclear Fuel: Technical Consideration and Challenges for Extended (>50 Years) Dry Storage, DOE/ID RPT-1575, June 2017 identified five knowledge gaps and technical data needs. This DOE SNFWG report also made several recommendations including one to develop an action plan to identify needed technical and engineering activities and analyses to address the identified knowledge gaps and technical data needs. A team composed of twenty SNF management experts and appropriate subject matter experts from the Idaho National Laboratory and Savannah River National Laboratory was assembled to develop this action plan. The action plan identifies and recommends six technical and engineering tasks and estimated cost and schedule for task completion. It is estimated that $5M and 18 months will be required to execute the recommended tasks.
