Study of Proliferation Risk for Nuclear Fuel Cycles with Plutonium Breeding
Calculation study has been carried out to analyze the proliferation resistance of different scenarios of nuclear fuel cycle organization. Scenarios of stable and developing nuclear power were considered with involvement of thermal and fast reactors. The attention was paid mainly to the cycles with extended plutonium breeding on the basis of fast reactor technology, and to the schemes of fuel cycle organization allowing to minimize the proliferation risk.
