Resource Stewardship in Supply Chain: industrial by-product in mix
Safety & Stability: hazardous waste management
The use of SCMs played an important role for the canister storage facility at the Hanford Site nuclear facility. The CSB is a large, 42,000 square foot facility in Hanford’s 200 East Area which stores about 2300 tons of spent nuclear fuel packaged in approximately 400 Multi-Canister Overpacks (MCO’s). The MCO’s are stored in 220 carbon steel tubes within a below grade concrete vault. The MCO’s will be safely stored in the tubes until permanent placement in a National Repository.
