srs snf acceptance criteria
SRS SNF Acceptance Criteria
  • Environmental Impact Statements
  • L-Area Authorization Basis
  • Spent Fuel Engineering Review
    • DOE Appendix A and B
  • Nuclear Criticality Safety Review
environmental impact statement
Environmental Impact Statement

DOE/EIS-203F – Programmatic SNF Management EIS,

  • Existing and newly generated Al-clad spent nuclear fuel will be consolidated at SRS
    • FRR and DRR Al-clad fuel
    • INL Al-clad fuel
environmental impact statement1
Environmental Impact Statement

DOE/EIS-0218F – FRR SNF EIS

  • Applies solely to the following types of reactor fuels:
    • Foreign research reactor spent nuclear fuel which contains uranium enriched in the United States.
      • Al-clad fuel where the uranium-235 content is >/= 20 percent by weight
        • Fuel meat configured as U-Al alloy, uranium-oxide,or uranium-aluminide.
        • Fuels containing significant quantities of uranium-233 are excluded
      • Al-clad fuel where the uranium-235 content is
        • Fuel meat configured as uranium-silicide, uranium-oxide, or uranium-aluminide.
l area authorization basis
L-Area Authorization Basis
  • All fuel received and stored in accordance with:
    • Technical Safety Requirements: S-TSR-L-00002, Technical Safety Requirements, Savannah River Site, L-Material Storage Facilities (U)
    • Documented Safety Analysis: WSRC-SA-2004-00002, L-Area Material Storage Facilities, Documented Safety Analysis (U)
spent fuel engineering review
Spent Fuel Engineering Review
  • WSRC-TR-98-00199 – Foreign and Domestic Research Reactor Fuel Program Instructions for Engineering Reviews of SNF Receipts and Storage.
    • Reactor operators prepare and submit Appendix A data, drawings, fuel cycle history, pre and post fuel irradiation data.
    • Spent Fuel Engineering performs a consistency check of the data by calculation.
    • ANL/RERTR/TM-26 – Nuclear Mass Inventory, Photon Dose rate and Thermal Decay Heat of Spent Research Reactor fuel Assemblies.
    • Review of Nuclear Criticality Safety Evaluation and Nuclear Safety Data Sheet
doe appendix a
DOE Appendix A
  • Appendix A: Spent Nuclear Fuel Acceptance Criteria
    • Detailed Fuel Element and Fuel Assembly Data
    • Fuel fabrication drawings
    • Fuel condition statement
    • Summary of Reactor fuel cycle
    • Pre and Post irradiation radionuclide data
    • Used for FRR and DRR fuel data (no “contract” for DRR)
doe appendix b
DOE Appendix B
  • Appendix B: Transportation (Cask) Acceptance Criteria
    • FRR only
    • Shipment and transportation package requirements
    • Criteria for identification of Failed Fuel, Degraded Fuel or Materially Damaged Fuel
    • Radionuclide (SIP) test for failed fuel
    • Radiological survey requirements
nuclear criticality safety review
Nuclear Criticality Safety Review
  • WSMS-CRT-01-0116 – Nuclear Criticality Safety Methods Manual
    • Nuclear Criticality Safety Evaluation
    • Nuclear Safety Data Sheet
      • Fuel is critically safe for cask unloading and storage
      • Analysis can be cask specific – unload cask underwater, unload cask using the Shielded Transfer System, unload cask in air by hand (fresh or zero burn up)
      • Storage system specific
      • Safe for on site transfer
  • Nuclear Safety Data Sheet Approved by DOE-SR
