Just as in all other industries, sustainability is vital to nuclear energy production.
Recycling of nuclear fuel contributes to the environmental and social pillars of that
sustainability because it simultaneously improves natural resources utilization and waste
minimization. This webinar provides additional insight to the consequences of repetitive
fuel recycling and compares selected reactors based on their neutronics performance in
the closed Th-U and U-Pu cycles.
The Strategy to Restore American Nuclear Energy Leadership is a direct outcome from the efforts of the United States Nuclear Fuel Working Group established by the President in his July 12, 2019 Memorandum on the Effect of Uranium Imports on the National Security and Establishment of the United States Nuclear Fuel Working Group.
This comprehensive strategy includes policy recommendations on Executive, Congressional, and regulatory actions that could be taken to enhance the positive attributes of nuclear power, revive capabilities of the uranium mining, milling, and conversion industries, strengthen U.S. technology supremacy, and drive U.S. exports, while assuring consistency with U.S. nonproliferation objectives and supporting national security.
