Research and development of pyroprocessing technology in Japan

Inoue, Tadashi*; Koyama, Tadafumi*; Myochin, Munetaka; Arai, Yasuo

Recent progress of pyrochemical reprocessing technology based on metal electrorefining process and nitride electrorefining process is introduced. This technology can be applied to oxide fuel as well as metal fuel by adding the oxide reduction process. In addition to the development of process technology for electrorefining, thermodynamic database of actinides and lanthanides in molten salt or liquid metal has been prepared. The progress of pyrochemical reprocessing technology, which has the advantage of proliferation resistance and whole recovery of minor actinides, has been demonstrated.
