The Waste Control Specialists (WCS) is preparing to notify the U.S. nuclear regulatory commission (NRC) of its intention to apply for a license for construction and operation of interim centralized storage of the spent nuclear fuel and the HLW.
The site for the storage will be located in Andrews country in West Texas.
The application will focus on intermediate and not final storage of spent nuclear fuel. The lifetime of such storage will be on the order of hundreds of years. The need for the creation of an interim storage occurred after the Obama administration froze the work on the creation of a geological repository in Yucca Mountain.
The WCS head office is located in Dallas, Texas. The company operates two storages of the low-level radioactive waste In Andrews country, including the Texas Compact Disposal Facility.
