SNF storage facilities are being built in Ukraine: won't the country turn into a "European nuclear dump"?

56

April 26, 2021 marks the 35th anniversary of the terrible accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. First of all, the territory of Ukraine, then the Ukrainian SSR, suffered from this catastrophe. Ironically, on this very day, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy arrived at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant to present a license to open and launch a dry storage facility for spent nuclear fuel (ISF-2).


In fact, ISF-2 tests were successfully completed back in December 2020, after which 186 spent fuel assemblies were placed for storage for a period of 100 years. That is, the opening of the storage facility in April 2021 was purely formal. Vladimir Zelensky and his entourage did not find anything better than to time the opening of the storage facility to the anniversary of the Chernobyl accident.

Now storage facilities located at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant are divided into four types:

1) storage facilities for spent nuclear fuel;
2) storage of radioactive waste;
3) points for temporary localization of radioactive waste and equipment contaminated with radiation;
4) radioactive waste disposal sites.

Zelensky announced the opening of a spent nuclear fuel storage facility. And he made a very ambitious statement that the ChNPP exclusion zone should be turned into a territory of revival. Well, let him try.

HOYAT-2 was built for 20 years


What is the object opened by the Ukrainian president? ISF-2 is intended for storage of spent nuclear fuel from the first three power units of the Chernobyl NPP. The first Storage Facility for Spent Nuclear Fuel (ISF-1) was built back in Soviet times, in 1986. ISF-2 plans to store 21 thousand fuel assemblies and more than 23 thousand extension rods for secular storage, as well as about 2 thousand spent additional absorbers.


Ukraine thought about the construction of ISF-2 long before the Maidan, in 2001. It is clear that Kiev would not have enough own funds for the construction of such an object, therefore the construction was financed by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. 28 countries participated in the program, including the Russian Federation. That is, the object was built with the money of the European Union and the same Russia, and if anyone should be thanked for its construction, it is clearly not Zelensky, who in those years was just starting his career in show business and did not think about any global political or economic problems.

True, the construction of ISF-2 itself was slow and problematic. At first, the French company Framatome was engaged in it, which made very serious and dangerous mistakes. For example, the French “forgot” about the “drying” of ISF-1 assemblies. The builders made cracks in the concrete building of the storage facility. Finally, in 2007, a new contractor, the American company Holteс International, was engaged in the construction of ISF-2. Construction work continued for almost fourteen years before the head of the Ukrainian state was able to open this facility in a solemn atmosphere.

CSFSF - the reason for refusal to export spent nuclear fuel to Russia


By the way, in 2020 it was also announced the opening of another similar facility - the first launch complex of the Centralized Spent Nuclear Fuel Storage Facility (CSFSF). The announcement of the opening of the CSFSF was followed by a loud statement about the termination of the export of spent nuclear fuel to Russia. Independence, of course, is above all, but so far the CSFSF is not fully completed and it also does not have a developed logistics infrastructure, so it is not very clear how Ukraine will organize the removal of radioactive waste to this facility.

Previously, a dry storage facility for spent nuclear fuel was located only at the Zaporozhye NPP. It was designed only for a 50-year storage period for spent nuclear fuel. Since the facility in Zaporozhye could not accommodate spent nuclear fuel from all Ukrainian nuclear power plants, the waste from the Rivne, Khmelnytsky and South Ukrainian nuclear power plants was exported to the Russian Federation. Here they were placed for temporary storage or processing with subsequent return to Ukraine.

Currently, most of the spent nuclear fuel from VVER-1000 units is temporarily located in Russia. At the same time, the terms on which the Ukrainian government negotiated with the Russian one had long expired, but until the CSFSF was built, Kiev was forced to regularly extend the terms and pay about $ 200 million a year for the provision of such a service. Now in Kiev they expect to free themselves from such a burden, but are the plans of the Ukrainian leadership really destined to come true, especially in the foreseeable future?

So, at present, Ukraine has already refused to export its spent nuclear fuel to Russia. But at the same time, the CSFSF in Ukraine has not yet been launched. Its construction will cost no less than the construction of ISF-2 at the time. We will also have to lay a railway line to the CSFSF, since the only branch of the railroad along which it was possible to deliver fuel was destroyed and taken out for scrap.

If we assess the costs of Ukraine for the construction of CSFSF, then in the near future they will be much higher than the country paid Russia for storing spent nuclear fuel. Experts say that according to the most optimistic forecasts, the CSFSF will pay for itself in more than 20 years. The total cost of building a CSFSF is estimated at $ 1,5 billion, which, firstly, is a lot for such facilities even by world standards, and secondly, an almost unaffordable amount for today's meager Ukrainian budget.

But even those 1,5 billion that Ukraine will have to spend on the construction of the CSFSF are not final: every year Kiev will have to allocate 120-130 million dollars to ensure the functioning of the storage facility. Thus, Ukraine will be able to feel the benefits of refusing to export spent nuclear fuel to Russia in forty years.

Europe's nuclear dump is not the best prospect for the country


However, there are other probable considerations that can be guided by Kiev, refusing to export spent nuclear fuel to Russia and building a CSFSF in Ukraine. First, Ukraine will have the opportunity to put pressure on Moscow, threatening not to take away from Russia the spent nuclear fuel that is now stored in our country. Thus, Russia will find itself in a difficult situation and will have to spend additional funds to store Ukrainian spent nuclear fuel.

Second, and more importantly, the construction of a CSFSF in the long term can turn Ukraine into a testing ground for storing spent nuclear fuel for other countries. In other words, Kiev will import SNF from European nuclear power plants for money and store it in Ukrainian storage facilities. Moreover, given the scale of Ukraine's debt to the European Union and its constant growth, it is possible that Ukraine will also receive direct benefits from the storage of foreign spent nuclear fuel in many decades.

Last year, the issue of turning Ukraine into a nuclear dump was raised in one of his speeches by the deputy head of the People's Militia of the DPR Eduard Basurin. But then experts questioned his assumptions: it is really costly and difficult for the United States to ship spent nuclear fuel across the ocean in order to store it in Ukraine. But it is quite possible to import nuclear waste from Europe into Ukraine.

It is no coincidence that the Ukrainian media periodically emphasize that spent nuclear fuel is not waste - they say, radioactive, there is no dispute, but they have a certain prospect in terms of future use.

In any case, Kiev got involved in really very expensive projects, and it is not yet very clear where the funds will be obtained from to complete the construction of the CSFSF and its subsequent maintenance. So fears about the prospects of turning the country into a "nuclear dump for Europe" are not groundless.

      Yes, then the 5th column started up.

      For the period from 2019 to 2022 from Germany to Russia will be brought in 12 thousand tons spent nuclear fuel.
      From the beginning of 2020 to June 2020, according to Ekozashchita, over three thousand tons of nuclear waste.


      And the most symbolic:

      A new cargo was sent from Germany to Russia with 600 hundreds tons nuclear waste on Monday, 22 June 2020 year.

      Or that other?

          This is very good, but there is a nuance. Will be processed into raw materials from 2 to 10%... Everything else is deposited.

          Translating into numbers:

          12 tons of spent nuclear fuel are imported.
          Of them maximum 1 tons will be processed into raw materials.
          Other 10 800 tons to our land.

            I don't remember exactly, but for MOX fuel, they will be able to recycle all assemblies when the technology rolls back to the end. It seems that the UDC has already passed in Zheleznogorsk. By the year 30, some more fuel should be processed for processing. Remix. Also a mixture. Rosatom is a serious office with big plans. I doubt that they are carrying fuel without any plans for it.

            This is still in the "ground", to be more precise in the storage. The technology is developing, and the raw materials are running out. In the future, what now is waste, tomorrow is fuel.
            In Soviet times, non-ferrous metal was lying everywhere, now ferrous metal cannot be found in 20 years.
            The possibilities for safe storage allow, the bonus is the payment for storage and the prospect of processing.

        For example, up to 2 kg of ruthenium, up to 1,3 kg of palladium and up to 0,5 kg of rhodium can be extracted from one ton of spent nuclear fuel (SNF). The cost of separating palladium is about 50 thousand rubles / kg, which is much less than the cost of natural palladium - 750 thousand rubles / kg. There is one more reason to be careful with nuclear waste. ... Spent nuclear fuel is being transported to the Russian Federation under the terms of supply of unused fuel.
        Spent nuclear fuel is being brought back to Russia. Why?

            By itself, uranium hexafluoride is rare muck, but it is not radioactive and there is no rhodium, no palladium, or ruthenium in it. These are raw materials for further processing. And this has nothing to do with what is being built in Ukraine, where there is no SNF reprocessing capacity and is not expected.

        Specify where the spent nuclear fuel came from, when they talked about "damage tails", these are still different things ...
        According to the newspaper, 2019 thousand tons of uranium "tails" - by-products for enrichment, which remain in the production of fuel for nuclear power plants, will be imported from Germany to Russia in the period from 2022 to 12. The contract was signed with the German subsidiary of the British company Urenco Group. https://lenta.ru/news/2019/10/23/otxody/
        TENEX explained that depleted uranium is being imported into the Russian Federation, a useful raw material that is used at Russian enrichment enterprises to produce enriched uranium in an economically efficient way. "Thus, foreign depleted uranium is imported into Russia not" for burial, "but for processing to a useful product - OUP - with its subsequent export back abroad," the statement says. https://1prime.ru/News/20191023/830448314.html

        You would read the text before linking to it. Where are the tails radioactive? People from this "Ekozashchita" either do not understand at all what they are writing about, or are deliberately engaged in substitution of the concepts of lying for the sake of a catchy headline. This uranium will again be squeezed out in centrifuges and part of it will return to Germany in the form of fuel assemblies. For the rest, the dew has his own plans related to a closed cycle. So this is really different.

                        Occultism was used by Ahnenerbe for propaganda. Well, they say, the Germans are the descendants of the Aryans, so no one can and should not resist them. In outline.
                        And the cuckoo did not go to the Nazi authorities at all. Ahnenerbe's research was quite utilitarian in nature. If there were any references to mysticism, then, again, exclusively for propaganda purposes.
                        And studies of all kinds of paranormalism were carried out even in the USSR.

                        Like the Nazi elite was atheistic and did not believe that the "descendants of the Aryans" are the best? Well ... It is quite possible ... Our elite is blowing in our ears that there is no country in the world more beautiful than Russia. True, at the same time, their children study and live in Decaying.

    As soon as they begin to build socialism in Russia ... laughing
    What care about Ukrainians ... crying Do you know that:
    According to the environmental public organization, since the beginning of 2020, Russia has been delivered over three thousand tons of nuclear waste. So, the last load with 600 tons of waste arrived from Germany on June 15th. Due to the fact that the validity of the permit for the import of uranium waste into Russia through the ports of the Netherlands has been extended until 2023, environmentalists fear that the transportation of nuclear waste to the country will continue in the coming years.

    This is not a pound of raisins. Just now in the article, some users said that Germany would listen to some kind of European crap ... Well, it will ... But where will it be lucky with these hundreds of tons of spent fuel?

    So in Ukraine, the same mafia rules the "ball", only this mafia is a wall behind a nuclear dump. And Europe will always allocate money for this "ball", it is not at its own beloved to bury nuclear waste, if there is Ukraine.

    By and large, spent nuclear fuel, if properly handled and reprocessed, is a "recyclable material" for the nuclear industry. This is all returned after processing.

    Now the main problem for Westinghouse is not the compliance of the fuel rods with Russian standards, but what to do with them later. Therefore, the Czechs refused them, citing that they did not meet these very standards.
    Now Westinghouse will begin replacing Russian fuel at all nuclear power plants built by Rosatom, and the spent fuel will be transported near Kiev to Chernobyl.
    Therefore, the Czechs cheerfully abandoned Rosatom when building a new nuclear power plant, as they were assured that now there is where to export the fuel.
    The most interesting thing is that if something goes wrong, and it goes with a 200% probability, then all this radioactive shit will flow to Pripyat, and from there to the Dnieper, where Kiev is downstream. And then the main cities of Ukraine, except for Kharkov, Zaporozhye, Dnepropetrovsk, Nikolaev and the Black Sea.
    What is this, if not PERME (victory) over Mordor, over common sense.

    And you shouldn't be afraid. In general, storing radioactive waste is a very profitable business. Well, let alone the exclusion zone, which will not be reclaimed anyway in the foreseeable future, it is simply a sin not to use it for this.

    Another strange article - there is a nuclear power plant in Ukraine and there is waste that needs to be dealt with. They will build a storage facility and dump waste there. With Russia, thanks to V.V.P., + - normal relations have ended ... Therefore, the construction of such a center is absolutely the right step ...

    And where can Ukraine go, except how to build a nuclear repository. They have a fuel supply contract with Westinghuose. And they, unlike Rosatom, do not take fuel for processing, after which the amount of waste remains significantly less in volume. Spent fuel from Westinghouse does not recycle.

    Yes, then the 5th column started up.

    For the period from 2019 to 2022 from Germany to Russia will be brought in 12 thousand tons spent nuclear fuel.
    From the beginning of 2020 to June 2020, according to Ekozashchita, over three thousand tons of nuclear waste.


    And the most symbolic:

    A new cargo was sent from Germany to Russia with 600 hundreds tons nuclear waste on Monday, 22 June 2020 year.

    Or that other?


    Another horror story from eco-scholars.

    Давайте рассуждать здраво - это их пиво и что они хотят - нас не спрашивали, заниматься подсчётом и расчётом будем тогда, когда нас о том попросят и нам за это заплатят, проблемы за их хранимые у нас сборки - это не проблемы, сами сборки тоже, как не странно. стоят денег и мы имеем мощности и технологии для получения выгоды, а то что Зеленский "угадал" со сроками сдачи объекта - его проблемы и рефлексировать по поводу их очередной пэрэмоги не стоит. На мой взгляд важнее смотреть в свои штаны и считать свои деньги.
