DOE-ID Agreements & Commitments


Spent Fuel Settlement Agreement

The Spent Fuel Settlement Agreement agreement permits DOE to receive up to 1,133 shipments of spent nuclear fuel at the Idaho National Laboratory for storage over the next 40 years. In return, the agreement sets a timetable for the treatment of high-level waste now stored at the Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center, and the removal of 65,000 cubic meters of transuranic waste now stored at the Radioactive Waste Management Complex.  The agreement also establishes a schedule to place all spent fuel at INL in dry storage, and ultimately to remove all spent fuel from the state. This agreement is a federal court order that settled a lawsuit between DOE and the state of Idaho. Click here for the complete document - 1.8 MB  .
