High-Volume: Casks - Potential Benefits

  • Potential benefits
    • EM
      • Use most or all of the DU inventory which could avoid transportation and disposal cost
    • OCRWM
      • Plans to acquire use of a fleet of transportation casks, could benefit if life-cycle costs can be reduced
      • May have to pay for storage at reactors and the repository; could benefit if storage cask cost is reduced
      • Sharing cost savings with EM would be a win-win
    • Ohio, Kentucky
      • Potential for additional jobs to manufacture casks
