The Generation-II Project Task Force Team has investigated a research and development plan on a future nuclear fuel cycle in Tokai works for about three months from December 19,2002. First we have discussed about the present condition of Japanese nuclear fuel cycle and have recognized it as the following. *The relation of the technology between the LWR-cycle and the FBR-cycle is not clear. *MOX Fuel Use in Light Water Reactors is important to establish technology of the FBR fuel cycle. *Radioactive waste disposal issue is urgent. Next we have proposed the three basic policies on R&D plan of nuclear fuel cycle in consideration of the F.S. on FBR-cycle. *Establishment and advancement of "the tough nuclear fuel cycle". *Early establishment of the FBR cycle technology to be able to supply energy stably for long-term. *Establishment of the radioactive waste treatment and disposal technology, and optimization of nuclear fuel cycle technology from the viewpoint of radioactive waste.And we have proposed the Japanese technical holder system to integrate all LWR and FBR cycle technology.
