International Decommissioning Activities To Be Discussed At US Conference

Decommissioning

1 Aug (NucNet): A conference to be held in Charlotte, North Carolina, will focus on progress at nuclear power stations that are being decommissioned and the challenges of developing a spent nuclear fuel strategy.

The Nuclear Decommissioning And Used Fuel Strategy Summit, organised by Nuclear Energy Insider, will take place at the Sheraton Charlotte Hotel in Charlotte, North Carolina, on 1 and 2 October 2014.

The conference will include updates on initial decommissioning activities at the Kewaunee, Vermont Yankee and Crystal River nuclear stations. It will identify “regulatory expectations” and progress on decommissioning and spent fuel strategies from the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission and Department of Energy.

The global nuclear decommissioning and waste management market expected to exceed 420 billion US dollars (about 311 billion euros) over the next 20 years, NEI said.
