DOE Requesting Input on High-Level Radioactive Waste

The Department of Energy is soliciting public input on its interpretation of the definition for high-level radioactive waste (HLW). Originally defined by the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 and the Nuclear Waste Policy Act of 1982, the statutory term indicates that not all wastes from the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel are HLW. DOE is requesting specific feedback on its interpretation that reprocessing waste that does not exceed certain concentration limits or does not require disposal in a deep geologic repository and meets performance objectives of a disposal facility is classified as non-HLW.
