Clean Energy - Nuclear Fuel Cycle Research and Development

The Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) provides the technical leadership and support for important national and international priorities related to the safe management of spent nuclear fuels including spent fuel transportation, interim wet and dry storage of spent fuel and the development of spent fuel disposition technologies. This includes leadership and support for the execution of the ongoing and emerging missions of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Savannah River Site and other DOE programs. 

SRNL’s highly skilled and internationally recognized nuclear materials experts work closely with state, national, and international stakeholders in the development and deployment of customized solutions to mitigate a vast array of spent fuel management challenges.  They have conducted extensive analytical and laboratory research to develop spent nuclear fuel transportation, storage and disposal technologies that include the stabilization and development of new spent nuclear fuel forms, the development of new technologies to support transportation challenges, the recovery of damaged and degraded spent fuel and storage basins, development of best-in-class interim storage practices, and the qualification of the spent fuel form for geological disposal.
