Current state of the approach to spent fuel in Bulgaria is outlined. Spent fuel is moved to a retain pool and kept there from 3 to 5 years. At the moment about 2860 fuel elements are stored at the plant site. The fuel is returning in Russia for processing. Future plans include construction of a dry storage repository for about 12000 fuel elements for a period of 40-50 years. Decision about reprocessing or final disposal of future spent fuel should be taken shortly. 1 tab. (orig.).
