[EnergySolutions] Task Order 12: Standardized Transportation, Aging and Disposal Canister Feasibility Study

This report documents the concepts, feasibility, advantages, disadvantages and recommendations for STAD canister systems developed by EnergySolutions and its team of partners: NAC International, Talisman International, Booz Allen Hamilton, TerranearPMC, Exelon Nuclear Partners and Sargent & Lundy, hereafter referred to as “the Team”.


Initial Standardized Canister System Evaluation

This report documents an initial evaluation of integrating standardized canisters into the nuclear waste management system, which is an intermediate step in the quantitative assessment of standardization. This is a technical report that does not take into account the contractual limitations under the Standard Contract (10 CFR Part 961) that DOE has in place with nuclear utilities. Under the Standard Contract, DOE is obligated to accept only bare UNF. Acceptance of canistered UNF would require a mutual agreement to modify the contract.
