U.S. to Bury Almost All Existing Used Nuclear Fuel; Recycling Deferred at Least 20 Years

U.S. to Bury Almost All Existing Used Nuclear Fuel; Recycling Deferred at Least 20 Years 28 Jan 2013 There's little hope that the 70,000 metric tons of used nuclear fuel dispersed across the United States will ever be recycled, according to a recent study by Oak Ridge National Laboratory--so nearly all existing waste will go into the earth. In a study completed late last year, Oak Ridge officials determined that the U.S. is at least 20 years away from large-scale reprocessing of used nuclear fuel, if it decides to pursue such technologies. By then, they estimate, nuclear plants will have generated another 40,000 metric tons of spent fuel.
