Advanced nuclear fuel cycles to improve the safety, sustainability and economics of nuclear energy are under development internationally. P&T is one the candidate technologies to help reduce the heat, radiotoxicity and volume of radioactive waste. Recent developments indicate the need for embedding P&T strategies into advanced fuel cycles considering both waste management and economic issues.
In order to give experts a forum to present and discuss state-of-the-art developments in the field of P&T and advanced nuclear fuel cycles, the NEA has been organising biennial information exchange meetings on actinide and fission product partitioning and transmutation since 1990.
The meeting will cover scientific, as well as strategic/policy developments in the field of P&T and advanced nuclear fuel cycles, such as:
national nuclear fuel cycle strategies and scenarios analysis;
the role of advanced nuclear fuel cycles and P&T and their potential evolution in the future nuclear energy mix;
impact of P&T and advanced nuclear fuel cycles on geological disposal, economics, safeguards, etc.
Participants planning to attend the meeting without presenting a paper are invited to complete the registration form before 1 September 2018.
