Abstract: The principle adopted for the management of spent nuclear fuel from the Swedish reactors is final disposal without reprocessing. During the 1980ies systems and facilities for the transport and handling of the spent fuel have been built and put in operation. They include a transport system based on sea transports and a central interim storage facility, CLAB, where the fuel is stored in pools. The design and experiences from the operation of these systems and facilities are described in this paper. Before disposal the spent fuel will be encapsulated in a long-lived, corrosion resistant canister. An encapsulation facility is planned to be built adjacent to CLAB. This facility will also be discussed in the paper.
