Nuclear Fuel Cycle Nuclear weapons fuel cycle is focused on processing the fuel to those isotopes most effecve in weapons. Uranium weapons require simpler and shorter fuel cycle than plutonium weapons. Plutonium weapons require processing of spent reactor fuel .

    The nuclear fuel cycle is the series of stages that nuclear fuel materials go through in a cradle to grave framework. The Once Through Cycle (OTC) is the current fuel cycle implemented in the United States; in which an appropriate form of the fuel is irradiated through a nuclear reactor only once before it is disposed of as driftwood-dallas.com by: 1.

    issue for the sustainability of nuclear energy. The overall objective of the workshop on “The Back-End of the Fuel Cycle in a 1 GWe Nuclear Scenario” was to investigate alternative options for the back-end of the fuel cycle and to assess their capability to enhance the sustainability of nuclear power in the long term, to and beyond. Thorium fission-hybrid fuel cycle. The thorium fusion fission hybrid is discussed as a sustainable longer term larger resource base to the fast breeder fission reactor concept. In addition, it offers a manageable waste disposal process, burning of the produced actinides and Author: Magdi Ragheb.
