Study on actinide burning by fast reactor

Oki, Shigeo ; Okubo, Tsutomu; Abe, Tomoyuki

After the accident at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, re-examination of national energy strategy including nuclear energy has proceeded in Japan. Additionally, there are much more interests about the management of radioactive waste from the nuclear power generation. Regarding this situation, "the study for reducing the quantity and toxicity of radioactive waste" has recently been discussed in relation to the experimental planning of the prototype FBR, Monju. Based on the accumulated knowledge of the conventional FBR research and development, the study on actinide burning FR has been performed in JAEA. The basic characteristics in reactor physics are compared between FBR and FR. Based on the result of parametric survey calculations on FR core specifications, the relationships between core performances and Pu/MA transmutation characteristics are discussed. The foreseen experimental program using Monju etc. in support of the actinide burning FR core design is also explained briefly.
