A Once Through Scheme for Weapons Grade Pu Disposition in LWRs: Proliferation and Criticality Aspects
The paper describes the investigation of a novel scheme for burning weapons grade plutonium (W-Pu) in conventional light water reactors with a view to maximizing the net destruction rate of plutonium and increasing the proliferation resistance of the fuel ashes. The main feature of this scheme is the use of a fuel based on W-Pu and weapons grade uranium (W-U) in an inert matrix.
