This publication’s main objective is to respond to the growing interest of Member States in the development of advanced and innovative technologies for safe, proliferation resistant and economically efficient nuclear fuel cycles, while minimizing waste and environmental impacts. It includes detailed analyses of ongoing research and development activities related to the developmental status of minor actinides containing fuels and targets and its transmutation, reviews reactor and fuel cycle options and discusses performance characteristics of various minor actinide bearing fuel types, and summarizes the results of irradiation tests on minor actinide fuels. The comprehensive information compiled in this book and on the accompanying CD-ROM will be a valuable resource for scientists, engineers and designers involved in the development of advanced nuclear fuels with actinide recycling.
