This trilateral study confirms that the fundamental mission of the fast reactor is to achieve significant uranium utilization and waste management goals. Thus, fast spectrum reactor concepts are vital for nuclear fuel cycle sustainability goals. The trilateral countries agree that SFR, GFR and LFR are capable to achieve the goals. However SFR is the most matured technology from the view point of industrial deployment while GFR and LFR still require long term development before a test reactor project could begin. The trilateral common view supports fast reactor project situations in each country.
