Over the past several decades, the storage and disposal of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) has faced numerous legal, policy and technical issues that took significant time and resources to properly consider and resolve. The situation remains true today as local communities, affected Indian Tribes, state governments and of course the federal government contemplate many of the same issues again. Specifically, where, when and how will SNF be stored over the next several decades if not a century or more. Three significant policy issues are being tracked currently by this website — and suggestions for additional issues to follow are encouraged. First, what are the recommendations made by the Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s Nuclear Future (BRC) in its final report issued in January 2012, and how might they impact the storage of SNF in the future. Second, how will the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), which is charged with the initial implementation of the numerous recommendations from BRC proceed in the near-term. Third, how will the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) revise its December 2010 waste confidence decision (currently the subject of judicial challenge) in light of the prospect that SNF storage is likely to continue for over 100 years.
