The Energy Solutions proposal for Atomic City addresses two of the three GNEP facilities, a nuclear fuel recycling center and an advanced recycling reactor. Energy Solutions has also proposed GNEP sites for Barnwell, SC, and Roswell, NM.
The other Idaho GNEP proposal was submitted by the Regional Development Alliance (RDA) for a site at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL). The INL site proposal includes AREVA, the French nuclear giant, Boise, ID, based Washington Group Int'l, and the Battelle Energy Alliance, the INL site contractor for nuclear research programs. On March 29th Japan Nuclear Fuel joined the consortium. The RDA proposal addresses all three GNEP facilities including an advanced fuel cycle research center.
The Department of Energy has extended the comment period for the GNEP programmatic environmental impact scoping process from April to June of this year.
