  • 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.
