Nuclear Waste Management Policy & Strategy

CRESP develops and demonstrates the appropriate use of methodologies for advancing and communicating comparative life-cycle risk, benefit to human health and ecological resources and cost assessment for risk-informed selection of different environmental restoration and nuclear waste management options. To do this, the Consortium:

  • Evaluates and provides comparative insights, analysis and best practices at former defense nuclear production sites;
  • Examines siting choices by analyzing existing or evolving technologies needed for each type of nuclear waste management facility; and
  • Assesses the evolving technical approaches to future fuel cycles, emphasizing the external technical, environmental, economic, social and policy considerations associated with implementation of nuclear waste facilities.
