The European FP-6 integrated project EUROTRANS was devoted to management of high-level wastes from nuclear power plants, focusing on MA transmutation in ADS. The object of the project was the assessment of the design and feasibility of an industrial ADS prototype dedicated to MA transmutation. JAEA joined in the project as one of partners. This paper summarizes the ADS fuel development carried out in this project. As for the oxide fuel, a primary candidate, the results of design study, performance in normal operation, safety analysis, irradiation tests and out-of-pile property measurements are described. As for the nitride fuel, an alternative of oxide fuel, the results of irradiation tests and out-of-pile property measurements, and the progress of pyrochemical process for spent fuel treatment are described.
