    One of the waste products of a nuclear reactor is plutonium (Pu). This nucleus is radioactive and decays by splitting into a helium-4 nucleus and a uranium nucleus (Pu - 4He + U), the latter of which is also radioactive and will itself decay some time later.

The quality of the isotopic composition of plutonium fuel degrades as the number of recycles increases in thermal reactors. There are Physics of Plutonium Recycling: Plutonium Recycling in Pressurized-Water Reactors (Oecd Documents): Nea: : BooksAuthor: Nea.

• What is the impact on the physics of multiple recycling of plutonium if MOX assemblies are. Although the recycling of plutonium as thermal mixed-oxide (MOX) fuel in pressurised water reactors (PWRs) is now well-established on a commercial scale, many physics questions remain. The main question addressed in this report is the number of times plutonium can effectively be recycled in a PWR.

The OECD/NEA Working Party on the Physics of Plutonium Fuels and Innovative Fuel Cycles (WPPR) conducted a physics code benchmark test for the recycling of plutonium as PuO2/UO2 mixed-oxide (MOX) fuel in boiling water reactors (BWRs) compared to pressurised water reactors (PWRs).

Paris, France: Nuclear Energy Agency, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ; [Washington, D.C.: OECD Publications and Information Centre, distributor], © Physics of Plutonium Recycling Volume VII: BWR MOX Benchmark – Specification and Results The commercial recycling of plutonium as PuO2/UO2mixed-oxide (MOX) fuel is an established practice in pressurised water reactors (PWRs) in several countries, the main motivation being the consumption of plutonium arising from spent fuel reprocessing.

The history of plutonium requires the explaining of a lot of physics and chemistry. This was one of the most difficult books I've ever read on science history, but Bernstein does a brilliant job of communicating the science involved to the lay reader/5.

Much of the plutonium will have to be treated as a waste, while the HEU can be diluted and used as nuclear fuel. plutonium density and the boron concentration depend on each other, these two parameters had to be determined iteratively. The scheme for the plutonium recycling calculations is shown in figure 1.

For the first recycling, the isotopic composition of the plutonium in the spent UO2 fuel is used for the manufacturing of the MOX fuel. For the second. Participants in the BWR MOX Benchmark The OECD/NEA Working Party on the Physics of Plutonium Fuels and Innovative Fuel Cycles (WPPR) conducted a physics code benchmark test for the recycling of plutonium as PuO2/UO2 mixed-oxide (MOX) fuel in boiling water reactors (BWRs) compared to pressurised water reactors (PWRs).

Reactor-grade plutonium/RGPu is the isotopic grade of plutonium that is found in spent nuclear fuel after the primary fuel, that of Uranium that a nuclear power reactor uses, has burnt Uranium from which most of the plutonium isotopes derive, by neutron capture, is frequently found alongside the U fuel in civilian reactors, in the form of Low enriched.
