Current status of SFR development in Japan

Ieda, Yoshiaki; Chikazawa, Yoshitaka; Kotake, Shoji*

Fast reactor development experiences and status in Japan are summarized. The undergoing FaCT project is pursuing commercialization of fast reactor cycle system around 2050 under cooperation of MEXT, METI, utilities, venders and JAEA. As results of the FaCT Phase I, feasibility of the key technologies for JSFR has been evaluated and the project is waiting for launching the phase II due to the Tohoku large earthquake. It is considered that the nuclear development policy might be affected by the Tohoku large Earthquake/Tsunami in Japan. Nevertheless the significance of nuclear energy will not be changed and thus we will focus on the issues learnt from Fukushima accidents and reflect into the improvement of the safety of Monju and the safety design criteria for the next generation fast reactor systems.
