“Optimising spent nuclear fuel storage in Europe” – new ‘Key summary’

We are pleased to share a new ‘Key summary’ from EPJ N. Dimitri Alexandre Rochman and other scientists from the large European consortium, EURAD, have estimated the heat and radioactivity in spent nuclear fuel, and how this can be expected to change over time. These results were used to recommend best practice in fuel storage, and they have been published as an extensive review in the journal EPJ N.

“Optimising spent nuclear fuel storage in Europe” takes a close look at the original review and hears from Dimitri Alexandre Rochman on the significance of spent nuclear fuel (SNF).

"Key summaries" is a series of easy-to-understand articles aimed at non-experts. The articles summarise papers published in EPJ N and highlight and present key ideas and findings in a clear and concise way. Readers can then access the full text of the original paper at the end of each ‘Key summary’. "Key summaries" are brought to you in collaboration with SciencePOD.
