ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impacts of deferring the decommissioning of a nuclear power plant in the U.S. by extending its life for 20 to 30 years on the environment and funding. It states the link between the increase in the inventory of a radioactive isotope of a light water reactor (LWR) unit and that of service term. It emphasizes the need for each utility owner of an LWR unit to create financial deals for the decommissioning of such facility at the expiration of a 40-year license.
