EIS-0283: Notice of Intent to Prepare a Supplement to the Draft Environmental Impact Statement

Surplus Plutonium Disposition

The Supplement will update the SPD Draft EIS by examining the potential environmental impacts of using mixed oxide (MOX) fuel in six specific commercial nuclear reactors at three sites for the disposition of surplus weapons-grade plutonium. DOE identified these reactors through a competitive procurement process. The Department is planning to issue the Supplement to the SPD Draft EIS in April 1999.
