To ensure that nuclear energy is available in the 21st century in a sustainable manner, Member States of the IAEA are working to develop advanced and innovative nuclear reactors and fuel cycle options. The International Project on Innovative Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cycles (INPRO) was launched in order to emphasize strengths, take advantage of synergies and close potential gaps in this development. This publication presents the findings of the first phase of INPRO, and provides an overview on the history, present situation and future perspectives of nuclear reactors and fuel cycle technologies. In addition to a brief evaluation of existing and future reactor systems the reader will also find detailed information on nuclear fuel cycle issues. Attached to the publication is a CD-ROM with the full version of the report, which includes a Russian study on a sustainable global nuclear energy system and an overview on initiatives with regard to multilateral nuclear fuel cycle centres.
