Page 377 - December 31, 1985, total approximately $880 million. In addition to spent fuel generated since April 7, 1983, spent fuel or high-level waste generated prior to that date is subject to a fee equivalent to an average charge of one mill per kilowatt hour. Utilities had until June 1985 to decide on one of three payment options. Those who chose to pay in one lump sum by June 1985, to save interest charges, made payments totalling more than $1.4 kBlion.
Page 205 - Fundamental research is necessary to acquire a thorough understanding of the intricacies of gaseous fuel carburetion, manifolding, combustion, power optimization and emissions control so that natural gas can become universally accepted as a transportation fuel. Further research into novel gas compression concepts is necessary to advance the development of compressor technology. Research must also be conducted...
Page 447 - DOE not only maintain a viable heat source production capability within its laboratory structure but also continue those efforts necessary to improve heat source safety, improve production efficiency to reduce heat source costs, and continue work in loner-lead areas.
Page 449 - At the heart of the facility capability are experienced engineers, scientists, technicians, and operators. In recent years, the program has markedly Improved the efficiency of its facilities.
Page 82 - In implementing the program. All of the remaining funds will be available for award. Under the terms of Public Law 99-190, the funds will become available in three Increments as follows: $99.4 million in FY 1986, $149.1 million in FY87 , and $149.1 million In FY88.

Page 645 - ... with results of future accidents. It may also indicate weaknesses in present designs, whose correction would be important for the prevention of serious accidents. These uncertainties have not prevented us from reaching an overwhelming consensus on corrective measures. Our reasoning is as follows: Whether in this particular case we came close to a catastrophic accident or not, this accident was too serious. Accidents as serious as TMI should not be allowed to occur in the future. The accident...
