IMPACT OF THE PROPOSED DISPOSAL OF HIGH-LEVEL RADIOACTIVE WASTE AT THE NEVADA TEST SITE ON THE TRANSPORTATION OF REACTOR WASTE PRODUCTS

A recent concept proposes the conversion of high-level radioactive waste to glass and its disposal at the Nevada Test Site (NTS). Application of this concept has a certain impact on the packaging and transportation of the high-level waste. The proposed storage sites are compared with the NTS in terms of differences of transportation distances and certain other criteria.
