Dounreay fuels - closing date for comments is March 23
March 16, 2012
March 23 is the closing date for the submission of views to the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority about options for managing its stock of nuclear fuel at Dounreay.
The NDA inherited approximately 100 tonnes of fuel from research programmes at Dounreay that ended in the 1990s.
Last year, it decided to transfer 44 tonnes known as "breeder" to Sellafield and in February invited views on options for the remainder of the fuel at Dounreay.
The closing date for comments on the options - removal from the site or continued storage at Dounreay - is March 23.
