This chapter begins with a description of the CANDU reactor, describing the main plant features, its fuel and fuel cycle and the control and safety aspects of the reactor. The chapter then summarizes evolutionary trends in the reactor design, followed by a discussion of the advanced fuel cycles that could be employed in existing or future CANDU reactors, including LEU, recovered uranium, DUPIC, MOX, actinides and thorium.

Actinide Burning in CANDU Reactors

Actinide burning in CANDU reactors has been studied as a method of reducing the actinide content of spent nuclear fuel from light water reactors, and thereby decreasing the associated long term decay

Achieving Resource Sustainability in China Through the Thorium Fuel Cycle in the Candu Reactor

The CANDU® reactor is the most resource-efficient reactor commercially available. The features that enable the CANDU reactor to utilize natural uranium facilitate the use of a wide variety of thorium
