The Army is investigating the use of solidified fission product wastes as a heat source for thermal utility systems on military installations. A boiler system has been conceptually designed, thermal and radiological requirements are still being investigated. The application of nuclear waste as a heat source affects the entire scope of nuclear waste management offering both benefits and problems which must be examined thoroughly before final conclusions can be drawn.
