Question raised in Rajya Sabha on Plan to Make Use of Nuclear Wastes, 27/06/2019
Question raised in Rajya Sabha on Plan to Make Use of Nuclear Wastes, 27/06/2019. India has adopted “closed fuel cycle”, where spent nuclear fuel is regarded as a material of resource. Closed fuel cycle aims at reprocessing of spent fuel for recovery of Uranium and Plutonium and recycling them back to reactor as fuel. This finally leads to a very small percentage of residual material present in spent nuclear fuel requiring their management as radioactive waste.
