Title: Defense high-level waste and spent fuel characterization for geologic waste repositories

Abstract

Results of SANDIA-ORIGEN calculations are given for the total thermal output and radionuclide content, up to 100,000 years decay time, for defense high-level waste expected from the Savannah River Plant, the Hanford Reservation and the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory, and for one pressurized water reactor and five boiling water reactor spent fuel types. These results are expected to be of value in evaluating the potential for storing defense high-level waste and/or spent fuel in geologic waste repositories.
