By Glenn E. Schweitzer and A. Chelsea Sharber, Editors

As a part of a long-standing collaboration on nuclear nonproliferation, the nationwide Academy of Sciences and the Russian Academy of Sciences held a joint workshop in Moscow in 2003 at the medical features of a global radioactive disposal website in Russia. The passage of Russian legislation allowing the importation and garage of high-level radioactive fabric (primarily spent nuclear gas from reactors) has engendered curiosity from a few international governments, together with the united states, in exploring the potential of moving fabric to Russia on a short lived or everlasting foundation. The workshop taken with the environmental points of the overall situation and features of a potential garage web site, transportation to and in the web site, packing containers for transportation and garage, stock and responsibility, audits and inspections, and dealing with applied sciences.

Secretary of energy on issues pertaining to civilian nuclear energy, science, and technology. In 1999 NERAC established the ATW Subcommittee to provide advice on the accelerator transmutation of high-level waste from civilian nuclear reactors. Accelerator-induced transmutation has a unique set of problems, such as accelerator reliability and the uncertain problems of coupling an accelerator to the remaining transmutation complex. Given the formidable time and expense to develop this accelerator-based technology, and given the ability of fast reactors (such as those already contemplated for the next generation of nuclear reactors called GEN-IV) to do the same job, the subcommittee early in its deliberations decided to change its name to the Advanced Nuclear Transformation Technology (ANTT) Subcommittee and recommended that DOE not emphasize the use of accelerators for transmutation but place more emphasis on the use of fast reactors.

Report to the ANTT Subcommittee. December 2002. Phase II: Proof of Principle Under Phase II of the AFCI Program, which is considered the proof-ofprinciple phase, the following activities will be pursued: • The most promising technologies from Phase I, such as UREX/UREX+, will be identified for focused research and development. While many experts believe that UREX/UREX+ can be implemented on a commercial scale, dry processes like pyroprocessing may have advantages in handling large concentrations of transuranics.
