Reprocessed uranium (RepU), the uranium recovered from nuclear processing, is produced by several Member States in their facilities or through commercial contracts. From a sustainable development perspective, recycling of this uranium has become an attractive option for improving the efficiency of natural resource management and reducing radioactive waste accumulation. This publication demonstrates that reprocessing of spent fuel could form a key part of advanced fuel methodologies and describes various reuse options of RepU. In particular, it includes detailed review papers on management, storage, packaging and transport of RepU, reprocessing, utility experience and potential use of RepU. The importance of market aspects, economics and long term perspectives is also addressed.
