About the Edition

This NATO Advanced Research Workshop draws together Russian and Western specialists in a discussion of problems associated with the safe elimination of both weapons-grade and reactor-grade plutonium in reactors. The papers generally concern safety issues associated with utilizing plutonium in the nuclear fuel cycle, including facility requirements, licensing issues, proliferation risks, and a variety of advanced concepts for nuclear fuel cycles. The book moves from a discussion of general considerations for plutonium use/disposal to cover aspects of the fuel cycle and reprocessing aspects, its use in existing and near-future reactors, and its use in advanced reactors.

Nuclear reactors which act to generate power from fission are only one element in the sophisticated complex of operations that compose the nuclear “fuel cycle”. The efficient production of nuclear power from uranium fuel involves a series of steps including mining and milling, conversion and enrichment, fabrication and radiochemical : M. I. Solonin, A. S. Polyakov, B. S. Zakharkin. Nuclear Fuel Cycle and waste Management and industrial safety issues is important at all stages of uranium projects (Fig. 2). plants and the issues associated with spent fuel management over the long term. The information obtained during the meeting will be consolidated and published as an IAEA. This Safety Requirements publication establishes a basis for safety and for safety assessment at all stages in the lifetime of nuclear fuel cycle facilities. A broad scope of requirements is established for site evaluation, design, construction, commissioning, operation and preparation for decommissioning that must be satisfied to ensure safety. (Senator Edward Markey, a leader in the US nuclear-disarmament movement as a member of Congress since ) "The authors have done an invaluable service by putting together in one place the most coherent analysis of the risks associated with plutonium, and the most compelling argument for ending the practice of separating plutonium from spent.
