Global Market for Nuclear Spent Fuel - Focus on Dry Storage 2018 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Global Market for Nuclear Spent Fuel - Focus on Dry Storage 2018" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Spent nuclear fuel (SNF) or used nuclear fuel is fuel that has been irradiated in a nuclear power reactor at a nuclear power plant. Spent nuclear fuel contains plutonium, uranium or even thorium that has been permanently withdrawn from the nuclear reactor. There are many different types of spent nuclear fuel that are stored worldwide today. Some of the categories of SNF include materials production fuels, naval nuclear propulsion fuel, research reactor fuel, specialty fuel and the most common - commercial nuclear power reactor fuels.

Spent nuclear fuel is generally stored either in spent fuel pools or in dry casks. At present, most spent nuclear fuel is stored in spent fuel pools at individual nuclear reactor sites. Dry cask storage is gaining popularity in recent years, particularly after the Fukushima nuclear disaster of 2011. In dry cask storage, spent nuclear fuel assemblies are generally placed in canisters that have a heavy shielding around them.

Moving to the analysis of nuclear spent fuel market, we begin the section with an industry definition and report coverage. Basics of nuclear spent fuel are looked at, along with the characteristics of spent nuclear fuel. Composition, heat generation and radioactivity of SNF are analyzed. Risks from SNF, monitoring of spent fuel, future issues with SNF and transportation of SNF are also analyzed in the report.
