Özet

The potential of a catalyzed fusion-driven fast hybrid blanket to regenerate Canada deuterium uranium (CANDU) spent fuel is investigated. The investigations are done to achieve enrichment grades of fissile isotopes (EGFIs) in four applications: 1. recycling in a conventional commercial CANDU reactor (EGFI = 0.71 to 0.9%) 2. recycling in an advanced conceptual CANDU reactor with a high burnup rate (EGFI = 1%) 3. recycling in an advanced breeder with thorium fuel (EGFI > 1.5%) 4. recycling in a conventional light water reactor (LWR) (EGFI > 3%).
