Burnable poisons in sub-critical cores dedicated to radiotoxic waste transmutation

Partitioning and transmutation of plutonium, americium, and curium is inevitable if radiotoxic inventory of spent nuclear fuel is to be reduced by more than a factor of 100. This incineration process

Development of a Solvent Extraction Process for Group Actinide Recovery from Used Nuclear Fuel

When uranium is used as fuel in nuclear reactors it both undergoes neutron induced fission as well as neutron capture. Through successive neutron capture and beta decay transuranic elements such as

Source efficiency and high-energy neutronics in accelerator-driven systems

Transmutation of plutonium and minor actinides in accelerator-driven systems (ADS) is being envisaged for the purpose of reducing the long-term radiotoxic inventory of spent nuclear reactor fuel. F

Analysis of Severe Accident Scenarios and Proposals for Safety Improvements for ADS Transmuters with Dedicated Fuel

A safety strategy along the lines of a defense approach is presented where additional inherent and passive safety measures are proposed to achieve the required safety level and the ultimate goal is to eliminate any mechanistic severe accident scenario and the potential for energetics.

External Source Effects and Neutronics in Accelerator-driven Systems
