Abstract

In this section, the potential proliferation aspects of thorium based thermal and fast reactors are considered with reference to particular concepts described in this report ie. Thorium assisted Pu burning in PWRs, the thorium cycle in fast reactors and thorium in PWRs with U make-up. The proliferation characteristics are determined through the use of a proliferation 'metric'.
