An International Spent Nuclear Fuel Storage Facility: by Glenn E. Schweitzer and A. Chelsea Sharber, Editors

By Glenn E. Schweitzer and A. Chelsea Sharber, Editors

As a part of a long-standing collaboration on nuclear nonproliferation, the nationwide Academy of Sciences and the Russian Academy of Sciences held a joint workshop in Moscow in 2003 at the clinical points of a global radioactive disposal web site in Russia. The passage of Russian legislation allowing the importation and garage of high-level radioactive fabric (primarily spent nuclear gasoline from reactors) has engendered curiosity from a few overseas governments, together with the united states, in exploring the potential for moving fabric to Russia on a short lived or everlasting foundation. The workshop serious about the environmental elements of the overall place and features of a potential garage web site, transportation to and in the website, boxes for transportation and garage, stock and responsibility, audits and inspections, and dealing with applied sciences.
