Reprocessing nuclear waste much simpler if we separate uranium via fluoride volatility, then use it in Molten Salt Reactors. The fission products would then be safe in few years.
Can Use LFTRs to Consume Nuclear Waste. Instead of Yucca Mountain storage, completely fission the radioactive materials in spent fuel rods, depleted uranium from fuel rod assembly, and nuclear weapons. LFTRs fission over 99% of their fuel.
MSR – A Nuclear Reactor That Can’t Melt Down? No High-Pressure Coolant? Consumes Nuclear Waste? Yes!
We’ve been told nuclear power is great, and that it’s deadly. Few know that we’ve only been using one Type of nuclear reactor. We are using the type the fossil fuel industry wanted, not the type the nuclear engineers recommended. What are the safer, less expensive types of nuclear reactor, the Molten Salt Reactors?
