This map displays the current locations of stored inventory of SUNF across the United States. Operated & Maintained by Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Sponsored By the Department of Energy. Please scroll down to United States Stored Used Nuclear Fuel Sites and the Future Recycled UNF Electrical Energy Potential to see the amazing amount of future fuel already just sitting here!!

Waste to Energy is not a new concept by any means. In fact there are many states using Biomass or Biofuel, which is derived from using waste from crops, animals to produce energy. However, the fact is that burning biomass is neither clean nor renewable and it should be left in the past with fossil fuels.”

Nuclear – Waste to Energy, however is a clean and carbon free energy source that has not been fully utilized. By recycling the 97% uranium still unused whether by Fast Reactors or other methods, the United States would not have to depend on foreign sources or even need to mine for uraniun ore to process.

While technically this won’t happen in my lifetime, #WastetoEnergyNow would still be using Fision, so imagine that Delorean with a Mr. Fission ontop of it instead! lol Mr. Fusion scene from Back to the Future Part 2 – Back to the Future Part II is a 1989 American science fiction film directed by Robert Zemeckis and written by Bob Gale. The film stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson

All Utility Rate Payers in these states in the chart to the left, have actually used electricity generated by a nuclear power plant and paid a portion of their bill into a fund created by congress called “the Congressional Nuclear Waste Fund”. The fund was created in 1983 and funds were collected until 2014 when a lawsuit stopped the collections, but did not refund the money already collected.

This money can only be used for the purpose of dealing with SUNF!

  • This amount of money was collected by the US Government directly from electricity rate payers to take care of the disposition of “nuclear waste” from 1983 until 2014.
  • No effective action has been taken on this issue despite the expenditure of more than $10 billion.
  • The amount of money in this fund has risen to about $45 billion as interest has increased over the many years.
  • NO solution exists today to solve this issue, all because the US Government took responsibility and spent the money to no effect.
  • Thankfully, the money is still there and can be used for positive action, yet, still, no solution has been established after almost 40 years.
  • This existing fund is sufficient to move the existing recycling technology to commercial viability.
  • All we need is one Governor to agree to accept slightly used nuclear fuel (SUNF) in return for an applied science, tech-transfer National Laboratory and other benefits.
  • Since the energy production business in the US (all energy) is about $1 trillion per year, it is easy to imagine at least a $10 billion per year industry in next generation clean energy reactor development.
  • We only need to get this method to one Governor.  It is important for you to help us get this message to the right ears.  Our grandchildren and their grandchildren will thank you.

United States Stored Used Nuclear Fuel Sites and the Future Recycled UNF Electrical Energy Potential

This Section will reveal the amount of Slightly Used Nuclear Fuel (SUNF), in Metric Tons (MT), at all Currently Running and Closed Nuclear Power Plants across the United States. At each site we will also reveal the potential energy for that states current electric useage (as of December 31, 2019) if the SUNF was recycled in a Fast Reactor in the future (Unless of the Feds waste more of you tax dollars to dispose it someplace where folks will not want it!).

NOTE: I intend on completing the aerial photos of the freestanding “SUNF” at each site shown below. I would also like in the future to reveal the amount of Coal Fired Power Plants pollutants that can be eliminated by replacing those plants in each state with Fast Reactors fueled with SUNF!
