Random chart - nuclear waste



"In the absence of a permanent geologic repository for high-level nuclear waste, commercial nuclear power plants have been storing SNF on site using wet pool and dry cask storage methods pursuant to regulations promulgated by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission under the Atomic Energy Act, as amended (P.L. 83-703). The U.S. Nuclear Waste Technical Review Board estimates the quantity of SNF stored as of 2012 at commercial nuclear power plants will approximately double by 2048."
