The case is based on a law that requires DOE to begin removal of 1 metric ton of plutonium by January 1, given that the MOX project has failed. The law requires payment to the state of $1 million/day, up to $ million/year, for failure to meet plutonium removal milestones.

    For many years, he was one of the contributors to the Yellow Book and Red Book published by the OECD. He also provided technical support to the National Academy of Sciences’ study on Weapons Plutonium Disposition. Dr. Omberg is the author or co-author of more than one hundred journal publications, conference proceedings and technical reports.

Executive Summary BACKGROUND AND CHARGE TO THE PANEL The concept of the "spent-fuel standard" was introduced, in the and reports of the NAS Committee on International Security and Arms Control (CISAC) on the disposition of excess weapons plutonium, as the criterion for judging the adequacy of resistance to theft and prolif- eration.

In this report, I will take at face value the declaration of governments regarding the extent to which they consider a part of their military plutonium stocks to be in excess of their needs.

The. determined disposition paths for most of the current U.S. inventory of surplus, weapons-usable plutonium; however, MT of surplus weapons-usable plutonium ( MT of pit plutonium and 6 MT of non-pit plutonium) did not have an assigned disposition path.

Tom Clements, Edwin Lyman, and Frank von Hippel. In the United States and Russia signed a Plutonium Management and Disposition Agreement (PMDA), in which each side agreed to dispose of at least 34 tons of weapons plutonium made surplus by the reductions in its Cold War nuclear arsenal. President Barack Obama has described the combined 68 tons of plutonium as enough “for about.

The most difficult step in the development of an improvised nuclear device is acquiring weapons-usable nuclear material.

NNSA’s Material Management and Minimization program reduces the risk of highly enriched uranium (HEU) and plutonium falling into the hands of non-state actors by minimizing the use of and, when possible, eliminating weapons-usable nuclear material around the world. plutonium stockpile.

Notwithstanding the “no surplus plutonium” policy, Japan has accumulated more than 9 tons of civil unirradiated plutonium (see table.) The JAEC Technical Subcommittee on Nuclear Power, Nuclear Fuel Cycle, etc.

has further recommended that Japan’s plutonium stockpile be reduced regardless of the fuel cycle.

In addition to t (42 tons) of weapons-grade plutonium already declared by the President as excess to national security needs, the material analyzed includes weapons-grade plutonium that may be declared surplus in the future, as well as weapons-usable, reactor-grade plutonium that is surplus to the programmatic and national defense needs of.

This fifth Knol on nuclear proliferation suggests technical policies to get nuclear demilitarization on track. “Working toward global elimination of nuclear weapons” requires specific tasks and budget without delay.

Lead time is needed to extend the infrastructure for disassembling the arsenal and for denaturing fissile constituents. Some costs can be recouped in terms of energy.
