Vladimir S. Kagramanyan - Closure of nuclear energy fuel cycle as a pathway to global sustainable nuclear power future

We expect that nuclear power capacity moderate growth in the next 1-2 decades after Fukushima will be based on use of advanced LWR technologies operating in open fuel cycle accompanied by intensive improvements in nuclear safety standards.

In the lecture different options for closure of nuclear fuel cycle for existing LWR and future FR will be presented and discussed from different aspects: development status; resource effectiveness; waste minimization; nonproliferation; economics and their applicability for use in regional multilateral fuel cycle centers.
