Abstract The fuel discharged from Breed and Burn (B&B) reactors contains a relatively high content of fissile plutonium (∼10%). This study assesses the feasibility of reducing this fissile content while increasing the fuel utilization by loading the B&B discharged fuel, after reconditioning, into Pressurized Water Reactors (PWR). Two processes are examined for recycling the B&B reactor discharged fuel: the melt–refining process and the AIROX process. Both use processes that can remove a… Expand
