Lessons Learned from the Yucca Mountain and WIPP Projects
For more than 30 years Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) has played a key role in the development and implementation of total system analyses of waste management systems in the United States. Two very important applications have been the total system analysis of long term performance that supported (1) the Compliance Certification Application (CCA) for the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in 1996 and (2) the License Application (LA) for the Yucca Mountain (YM) Repository in 2008.
