Gap Material Plutonium - Transport, Receipt, and Processing

Based on the analysis in the environmental assessment, the U.S. Department of Energy, National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), issued this finding of no significant impact for transporting up to 900 kilograms of plutonium from foreign countries to the Savannah River Site in South Carolina for storage and processing pending final disposition. NNSA will extend the existing mitigation plan in place for the Foreign Research Reactor Spent Nuclear Fuel Program to the receipt of this plutonium to ensure that potential doses to workers and crew involved with the transportation of the plutonium are maintained within acceptable limits.
