Abstract During the next 25–50 years an interim energy source that minimizes the consumption of the natural resources of the world is required. Based on current technological forecasting, nuclear power can satisfy these guidelines. Today, we are undergoing an evolution in nuclear power generating sources. We have in service nuclear burners such as the light water reactors (LWR) and the gas-cooled reactors (GCR). Currently available is a second-generation reactor concept, the breeder, which has… CONTINUE READING
