SFM

Welcome to the IAEA International Network on Spent Fuel Management - SFM Net

The spent fuel management (SFM) network is a forum for the sharing of practical experie​nce and international developments on spent fuel management.

Its main objectives are to facilitate the efficient exchange of information, communication and cooperation amongst professionals working in the back end of the fuel cycle – from its removal from a reactor core to its final disposition (i.e. SNF wet and dry storage, transportation, handling and retrieval, reprocessing and recycling, economics of the back-end of nuclear fuel cycle, damaged SNF management, stakeholder involvement, communication issues, etc.)

The establishment of the SFM Net is aimed at fostering safe, sustainable and efficient spent nuclear fuel management practices across all IAEA Member States.

For further information or questions please contact SFM.Contact-Point@iaea.org.
