Spent fuel

Techdictionary DictionaryInternational Codes
Nuclear reactor fuel that has been used to the extent that it can no longer effectively sustain a chain reaction.
Techdictionary DictionaryEIA Energy Dictionary
Irradiated fuel that is permanently discharged from a reactor. Except for possible reprocessing, this fuel must eventually be removed from its temporary storage location at the reactor site and placed in a permanent repository. Spent fuel is typically measured either in metric tons of heavy metal (i.e., only the heavy metal content of the spent fuel is considered) or in metric tons of initial heavy metal (essentially, the initial mass of the fuel before irradiation). The difference between these two quantities is the weight of the fission products.
