gen-iv webinar series: nuclear waste management strategy for molten salt reactor systems

June 15, 2022

Molten salt reactors (MSRs) are being considered as one of the potential nuclear options to meet future energy demands. While the MSR designs differ from the more traditional light water reactor, many of the waste streams are similar between the concepts. Other streams differ drastically.

This presentation outlines strategies for the treatment and processing of MSR-type wastes from concepts of the reconditioning and recycling of certain components to partitioning and direct immobilization of other waste components. The primary focus will be on the management of fuel salt-related wastes while other streams unique to MSRs are also briefly discussed.
