This report is the result of work performed under the first part (Task A) of a four-part contract to gather technical information to evaluate environmental acceptability of various high-level waste disposal options. The other tasks are: B-Effectiveness of Engineering Controls; C-Assessment of Migrations Pathways; D-Assessment of Accidental Pathways. The scope of Task A includes: characterization of commercial high-level waste, including comparisons of source terms from various fuel cycles and fuel mixes; characterization of government high-level waste, and comparison with commercial waste; estimation of existing and projected quantities of high-level waste.
