[3F06] Study on full recycling of TRU utilizing LWR and FR

*Ren Shimada1, Satoshi Takeda1, Takanori Kitada1 (1. Osaka University)

Keywords:TRU, full recycling, transmutation, Fast Reactor

In this study, the impact of TRU transmutation efficiency on nuclear fuel cycle scheme was evaluated. Technically, the performance of LWR and FR was evaluated through burn-up calculation, then the number of each reactor and the amount of reprocessed TRU were discussed.
