The design of innovative ADS for incineration of nuclear waste and energy generation requires the complete knowledge of basic cross sections for neutron-induced processes. For design purposes, these data need to be derived in a consistent, accurate and cost-effective way, to be evaluated and made available in a way compatible with simulation tools and industry practices in general. The main goal of the project is to produce, evaluate and disseminate high precision cross sections for the majority of the isotopes relevant to the waste incineration and the ADS design i.e. capture and fission cross sections for the minor actinides, capture cross sections for the main fission products and (n, xn) reactions for structural and coolant materials. This will be evaluated by using three core technologies: A high energy spallation source, high performance detectors and D AQ systems and state-of-the-art computer engineering.
