response to those comments. A companion report (Summary Report for the Long-Term Storage of Weapons Usable Fissile Materials [Revision 0]) was also issued in July to address technical, cost and schedule data on the long-term alternatives. It is also being revised in response to comments and will issued shortly. @article{osti_, title = {Nonproliferation and arms control assessment of weapons-usable fissile material storage and excess plutonium disposition alternatives}, author = {}, abstractNote = {This report has been prepared by the Department of Energy`s Office of Arms Control and Nonproliferation (DOE-NN) with support from the Office of Fissile Materials Disposition (DOE-MD). @article{osti_, title = {FMDP reactor alternative summary report.

that these materials be put into a form that cannot be easily reused in nuclear weapons. This study addresses the disposition of plutonium and highly enriched uranium (HEU) as it relates to putting these weapons-usable materials into non-weapons-usable forms in the short- and medium-term.

LONG-TERM DISPOSITION Categories, Criteria, and Standards The technical options for long-term disposition of excess weapons pluto nium can be divided into three categories: indefinite storage, in which the storage arrangements outlined in the previ- ous section would be extended indefinitely; minimized accessibility, in which physical. and one book on the disposition of surplus military weapons usable fissile materials, and hence it is not necessary to discuss these at length here. 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. The Storage and Disposition PEIS (DOE/EIS, December ) evaluated alternative strategies and locations both for long-term storage (up to 50 years) and for disposition of weapons-usable fissile materials. Among the alternatives analyzed in that PEIS was consolidated long-term storage at each of four candidate sites. A movement toward broad adherence to appropriate security levels would benefit from using pre-detonation nuclear forensics to help locate and plug fissile material leaks. Greater sharing of nuclear forensics information and capabilities is necessary if the international community is to promote and enforce a new international norm stressing that.
