ABSTRACT
Abstract  The residual energy release and radiotoxicity of spent high burnup VV�R-1000 fuel during long-term storage is investigated as a function of time. The contributions of α, β, γradiation and radiotoxicity-the maximum admissible activity of nuclides in air and water-are taken into account in the calculations of the energy release. The data presented can be used to develop methods for handling spent nuclear fuel from prospective power reactors.
