To apply for a certificate of compliance for a spent fuel storage system, an organization submits an application to NRC for review and approval. The application would contain information as described in "Standard Review Plan for Dry Cask Storage . The following casks are approved for storage of spent fuel under the conditions specified in their Certificates of Compliance. Certificate Number: Initial Certificate Effective Date: Janu , superseded by Initial Certificate, Revision 1, on Ap , superseded by Renewed Initial Certificate, Revision 1, on Decem This rule also established a new Subpart L within 10 CFR Part 72 entitled, “Approval of Spent Fuel Storage Casks,” containing procedures and criteria for obtaining NRC approval of dry storage cask designs. Discussion. This rule will add the Holtec HI-STORM cask system to the list of NRC approved casks for spent fuel storage in 10 CFR.
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is amending its spent fuel storage regulations by adding the TN Americas LLC (TN Americas), NUHOMS® Extended Optimized Storage (EOS) Dry Spent Fuel Storage System, to the “List of approved spent fuel storage casks” as Certificate of Compliance . both transportation casks/containers and spent fuel storage casks/containers can provide for improved planning and implementation in future cask use projects. It may also help build public confidence, which has become a crucial issue to most projects. There are several international resources providing technical information on transportation. NUREG Standard Review Plan for Renewal of Spent Fuel Dry Cask Storage System Licenses and Certificates of Compliance. NUREG Spent Fuel Transportation Risk Assessment. NUREG Standard Review Plan for Transportation Packages for Spent Fuel and Radioactive Material. NUREG/BR NRC brochure on Safety of Spent Fuel. Point-1 is in dry storage at the ISFSIs on those sites and these two spent fuel pools (SFP)s have been decommissioned. Millstone-1 UNF is all in wet storage in the spent fuel pool at that unit. For the purposes of this report all twenty shutdown reactors with UNF and .
Considering that since then many changes have been made in spent fuel storage, the Regular Advisory Group on Spent Fuel Management recommended in that a new report with the latest information on systems and equipment for preventing contamination and facilitating decontamination of spent fuel storage and transportation casks be prepared. wet or dry ISFSIs. On-site storage of spent fuel in dry casks has become increasingly popular among licensees needing additional capacity for storing spent fuel. Fuel that has been stored for at least five years in water has cooled sufficiently, and its radioactivity decreased enough, for it to be removed from the spent fuel pool and loaded. The direct final rule amended the NRC’s spent fuel storage regulations by revising the ‘‘List of approved spent fuel storage casks’’ to include Amendment No. 7 to Certificate of Compliance (CoC) No. for the NAC International, MAGNASTOR® Cask System. system is designed as a horizontal concrete module (). 6 The principal characteristics of dry cask storage systems are summarized in TABLE , which is located at the end of this casks are designed to hold up to about 10 to 15 metric tons of spent fuel. This is equivalent to about 32 pressurized water nuclear reactor (PWR) spent fuel assemblies or 68 boiling water nuclear reactor.
