We have been performing the feasibility study on conceptual design for an integrated metallic fuel recycle plant of 38 tHM/y throughput. As a result of this study, the process concept was constructed, and the main equipment and devices were designed considering rationalixation,operationability, reduction of environmental impact and safety for the future commercialization. Furthermore, the image of the whole building included in cells was examined. In particular, the electrorefiner was enlarged from its current size and the cathode processor was improved from the current batch type to the continuation type to increase throughput. The plant was evaluated comprehensively. We confirmed that the major specifications for plant design would be satisfied. The economical cometitiveness of the plant has been evaluated.
