1 Hanford Spent Nuclear Fuel Status Presented by Sen Moy National SNF Strategy Meeting April 14,

2 Hanford SNF Status K Basins Fuel Removal Knock-Out Pot Material Found Spent Nuclear Fuel Other Near-Term Activities 2

3 K Basins SNF Final two Multi-Canister Overpacks (MCOs) containing legacy fuel from K Basins loaded, dried, and shipped to Canister Storage Building (CSB) in September MCOs containing fuel from K Basins now interim stored at the CSB. 3

4 K Basin Knock-Out Pot (KOP) Sludge Material KOP sludge material was accumulated at KW Basin during cleaning of SNF and sludge consolidation activities: KW Basin Integrated Water Treatment System (IWTS) KOPs IWTS Strainer Basket Canisters Primary Cleaning Machine Canisters KOP sludge material under evaluation to determine disposition path by FY

5 Small quantities of spent fuel discovered during remediation of B, C, D, F, and H Reactor burial grounds. Discovery of additional fuel possible during remediation of remaining burial grounds supporting reactor operations. Found Spent Nuclear Fuel 5

6 In the past, found fuel was transferred to K Basins for consolidation with other N Reactor and single-pass reactor fuel into MCOs. This capability through FY 2011 still exists for found fuel while the KOP material is under evaluation. After FY 2011, a new path will be implemented to receive found fuel and storage at CSB/200 Area Interim Storage Area. Found Spent Nuclear Fuel 6

7 In new path, found fuel would be loaded into Found Fuel Containers (maximum 75 pound payload), shipped to CSB, evacuated and inerted, and closure welded. Found Fuel Containers would then be transferred to 200 Area Interim Storage Area and emplaced in RadVault. Found Spent Nuclear Fuel 7

8 Other Near-Term Activities MCO license application support OCRWM QARD Transition Activities Completing 37 years with AEC/DOE –RL (CSRS Pension Plan-PRICELESS!) 8
