A question for my readers:
Just a quick question that I’m trying to find an answer to.
We all know that when used fuel is discharged from a reactor, it’s highly radioactive.
But exactly how radioactive? Considering, say, typical used uranium oxide PWR fuel material at a typical burnup, what is the activity of the used fuel at discharge, in terms of, say, curies per GWh, or curies per gram?
I’m looking for a specific number, like that – can anybody direct me to it?
