#331 - Advances in the Pyroprocessing Based Fuel Cycle (14009)
This session covers recent research and technology advances relevant to the development of the pyrochemical method for treating spent nuclear fuel. Specific topics may include oxide reduction, electrorefining, metal processing, waste processing, and advanced materials for pyroprocessing. Molten salt topics relevant to spent fuel treatment are also welcomed.
