We have considered a fuel cycle scheme for multi-recycling of plutonium recovered from spent fuels (SFs) of LWRs . In this scheme, plutonium is used as the form of mixed oxide (MOX) partially loaded into the next LWRs in which 2/3 core fuels are UO 2 .
Past volumes of published work have examined the physics of plutonium-fuelled pressurised water reactors (PWRs), the physics of metal- and oxide-fuelled fast reactors and multiple recycling in conventional and high-moderation PWRs. Altogether, six volumes of work have been ... Plutonium in Commercial Power Reactors.
