... fuel bundles in specially designed canisters. The canisters would be emplaced in the rock of a suitable geological formation at a minimum depth of 500 m (1650 ft) for an intended lifespan of more than 100,000 years (i.e., indefinite storage). The Canadian spent-fuel canister consists of an inner...
