  • This report evaluates transportation issues for nuclear material in the proposed Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP) fuel cycle. Since many details of the GNEP program are yet to be determined, this document is intended only to identify general issues. The existing regulatory environment is determined to be largely prepared to incorporate the changes that the GNEP program will introduce. Nuclear material vulnerability and attractiveness are considered with respect to the various transport stages within the GNEP fuel cycle. Physical protection options are then outlined for the transportation of this nuclear material. It is determined that increased transportation security will bemore » required for the GNEP fuel cycle, particularly for international transport. Finally, transportation considerations for several fuel cycle scenarios are discussed. These scenarios compare the current "once-through" fuel cycle with various aspects of the proposed GNEP fuel cycle. 3« less

  • The United States Department of Energy (DOE) has undertaken a program to evaluate and select options for the disposition of weapons-grade fissile materials declared surplus to the national defense. Some of the disposition options under consideration intend that the weapons-grade fissile material be converted to a form that meets the proposed {open_quote}spent fuel standard.{close_quote} This paper identifies issues associated with the packaging and transportation of surplus fissile materials that meet the spent fuel standard (SFS).
  • This book contains the proceedings of state and local issues on the transportation of hazardous wastes. The transportation of hazardous materials is inherent in any advanced and technologically complex society. a number of industrial processes of vital economic importance are dependent on the uninterrupted flow of hazardous materials shipments. Although the production of hazardous materials is associated with technological growth and economic development, there is significant potential danger to the population and the environment in the event of a release. The risks associated with the transportation of hazardous materials have drawn considerable attention at local, national and international level, resultingmore » in the development of a regulatory framework to enhance the safety of hazardous materials movements. The principal objective of this conference was to enhance the exchange of information concerning effective sate and local methods for managing hazardous materials transportation within an evolving national system. To achieve the conference objectives, papers reflecting a wide spectrum of local and state issues in hazardous materials were include din the program. This volume includes copies of the papers presented at the conference. The papers are organized into the following thematical categories: (1) legislative issues, (2)risk perception, (3) database development (4) risk assessment and routing, and (5) risk management and advanced technologies.« less
