– West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) Strategic Vision

July 4, 2020 – The West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) is located at the Western New York Nuclear Service Center (WNYNSC), a 3,338-acre site 30 miles south of Buffalo, New York. The site is owned by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and is home to the only commercial spent nuclear fuel reprocessing facility to operate in the United States. In 1962, Nuclear Fuel Services, Inc. (NFS) entered into agreements with the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) and New York State to construct, license, and operate the commercial spent nuclear fuel reprocessing plant. NFS built and operated the plant and two waste burial grounds from 1963 to 1972. NFS processed 640 metric tons of spent nuclear fuel and generated over 600,000 gallons of liquid high-level waste (HLW). In 1976, NFS exercised its contractual right to yield the WNYNSC’s responsibility back to New York State and currently NYSERDA holds title and manages it. Link to document
