Significant quantities of weapons-usable fissile materials (primarily Plutonium and highly-enriched Uranium) have become surplus to national defense needs. These stocks of fissile materials pose significant dangers to national and international security. The dangers exist not only in the potential proliferation of nuclear weapons but also in the potential for environmental, safety and health consequences if surplus fissile materials are not properly managed. This summary report documents the process involved in determining and screening alternatives to best accomplish the management and disposition of these materials under five broad long-term storage options.
