Radioactive waste (RAW) management strategies

18.1.6 Nuclear research and test facilities

SNF from both domestic and foreign research reactors, in addition to limited quantities of commercial SNF, is stored at facilities at the SRS and the INL prior to further disposition. The DOE continues to receive SNF from foreign and domestic research reactors, but plans to complete the program for receipt of foreign research reactor SNF in 2019. No date has been set for completing receipt of SNF from domestic research reactors. The DOE also stores SNF from former defense production reactors. Its current policy and planning includes managing foreign research reactor SNF for 40 years or until ultimate disposition.
