Perspective on the Japanese next reprocessing for the future transitional period from LWR to FBR

Yamana, Hajimu*; Ono, Kiyoshi; Ohtaki, Akira; Yamamoto, Tokuhiro

In the Japanese future, continuous utilization of nuclear power generation is expected. To draw a future vision of reprocessing, as a preparatory investigation prior to the official deliberation of future fuel cycle policy, future demand for reprocessing, as well as other factors relating to the size and timing of the fuel cycle activity were carefully analyzed. The importance of the critical period from 2050 to 2100, which is called a Transitional Period from LWR to FBR, was pointed out, and the reprocessing strategy for this period was discussed. An emphasis was put on the necessity of a consolidated strategy for reprocessing of LWR and FBR spent fuels during this Transitional Period.
