 Title:  Joint motion for entry of consent order based on settlement agreement Add
 Summary:  This document contains the joint settlement agreement of 1995 regarding spent fuel processing activities at the Idaho National Laboratory's Expended Core Facility (ECF). The parties to the agreement include the State of Idaho, the Department of Energy, and the United States Navy. The ECF plays a critical role in Naval Reactors' cradle-to-grave support for naval nuclear propulsion. By the terms of the agreement, "the Navy may make only those shipments of naval spent fuel to [the Idaho National Laboratory (INL)] that are necessary to meet national security requirements to defuel or refuel nuclear powered submarines, surface warships, or naval prototype or training reactors, or to ensure examination of naval spent fuel from these sources" (3). The agreement defines the maximum amount of spent fuel that can be shipped to INL each year. Additionally, it mandates that all spent fuel, excluding that used for testing, must be removed from the INL by 2035. The agreement mandates that transuranic wastes stored at the Idaho National Laboratory be moved to another waste handling facility, such as the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in New Mexico, by 2018. In summary, the agreement supports the ECF's spent fuel processing activities in support of naval nuclear propulsion while reducing the Department of Energy's and Navy's ability to use INL as a long-term storage site for spent fuel and other highly radioactive materials.
