Design and construction of a high power CW (Continuous Wave) electron linac for studying feasibility of nuclear waste transmutation was started in l989 at PNC. The transmutation by photonuclear reaction using a electron accelerator has advantages of the small production for secondary radioactive waste and broad base of accelerator technology. The PNC accelerator (10 MeV, 20 mA average current, 20% duty) has been pre-commissioned. We have been very successful to produce 3 ms pulse width electron beam with 100 mA peak and energy about 2.9 MeV at present. The rest of the accelerating section was installed by March 1997. Studies are continued towards the designed goal of 100 mA beam with 4 msec pulse width and 50 Hz pulse repetition.
