Actinide management with commercial fast reactors

Oki, Shigeo 

The capability of plutonium-breeding and minor-actinide (MA) transmutation in the Japanese commercialsodium-cooled fast reactor offers one of practical solutions for obtaining sustainable energy resources as well as reducingradioactive toxicity and inventory. The reference core design meets the requirement of flexible breeding ratio from 1.03to 1.2. The MA transmutation amount has been evaluated as 50-100 kg/GWey if the MA content in fresh fuel is 3-5 wt%,where about 30-40% of initial MA can be transmuted in the discharged fuel.
