Accelerator-driven Transmutation of Waste

Accelerator-driven Transmutation of Waste Taking advantage of the recent breakthroughs in accelerator technology and of the natural flexibility of subcritical systems, the Accelerator-driven Transmutation of Waste (ATW) concept offers the United States and other countries the possibility to essentially eliminate plutonium, higher actinides, and environmentally hazardous fission products from the waste stream destined for permanent storage. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Acta Physica Hungarica Series A, Heavy Ion Physics Springer Journals

Abstract

Taking advantage of the recent breakthroughs in accelerator technology and of the natural flexibility of subcritical systems, the Accelerator-driven Transmutation of Waste (ATW) concept offers the United States and other countries the possibility to essentially eliminate plutonium, higher actinides, and environmentally hazardous fission products from the waste stream destined for permanent storage.
