Characteristics of Minor Actinide Transmutation in Minor Actinide Burner Reactors and Power Reactor

Abstract

One of the techniques of minor actinides transmutation is to recycle these nuclides into fission reactors. Two concepts of a minor actinides burner reactor with very hard neutron energy spectrum as well as very high neutronjlux me discussed. The fuel cycle facilities for these burner reactors am assessed to discuss the technical feasibili~ of these reactors. Transmutation of minor actinide in burner reactors is compared with those in power reaztors from the viewpoint of the reactor physics and the @el cycle.
