Excerpt
Excerpt: 1.1 YES The purpose of the Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative (AFCI) is to develop technologies that can reduce significantly the volume and toxicity of spent nuclear fuel generated by commercial nuclear power plants and thereby reduce the costs of waste disposal. National Energy Policy; Appropriation Language;Secretary Abraham Statements; AFCI Report to Congress (January 2003), Report of the U.S./Russian Joint Working Group on Advanced Nuclear Technologies (July 2002);Reports of the Nuclear Energy Research Advisory Committee (NERAC) Advanced Nuclear Transformation Technology (ANTT) Subcommittee (April 2002 and January 2003); FY 2004 Budget Request; and the AFCI Ten-Year Program and Program Management Plans. 20% Is the program purpose clear? Answer: Question Weight: Explanation: Evidence: 1.2 YES DOE's plan addresses size and cost of repository, proliferation risk and toxicity of spent fuel. It also will develop fuel cycle technologies for Generation IV reactor systems. National Energy Policy Report recommends addressing program issues. National Energy Policy; Secretary Abraham Statements; Annual AFCI Report to Congress (January 2003); Report of the U.S./Russian Joint Working Group on Advanced Nuclear Technologies (July 2002); Reports of the NERAC ANTT Subcommittee (April 2002 and January 2003); AFCI Ten-Year Program Plan. 20% Does the program address a specific and existing problem, interest or need? Answer: Question Weight: Explanation: Evidence: 1.3 YES This is a unique initiative that does not duplicate any other Federal or non-Federal program. AFCI Report to Congress (January 2003); Report of the U.S./Russian Joint Working Group on Advanced Nuclear Technologies (July 2002); Reports of the NERAC ANTT Subcommittee (April 2002 and January 2003); FY 2004 Budget Request 20% Is the program designed so that it is not redundant or duplicative of any other Federal, state, local or private effort? Answer: Question Weight: Explanation: Evidence: 1.4 YES The program has been designed with extensive government, industry, academia and international collaboration to achieve the program objectives. Considerable analysis has been and continues to be devloted to identifying the most efficient and effective technology options for accomplishing program objectives. Secretary Abraham Statements; AFCI Report to Congress (January 2003), Report of the U.S./Russian Joint Working Group on Advanced Nuclear Technologies (July 2002);Reports of the NERAC Advanced Nuclear Transformation Technology (ANTT) Subcommittee (April 2002 and January 2003); FY 2004 Budget Request; AFCI Ten-Year Program and Program Management Plans; FY 2003 AFCI Comparison Report.
