Paper Abstract

When the goal of recycling nuclear waste is applied to the nuclear electricity generation, it leads to the recycling of plutonium first, then of other heavy radioactive nuclides as minor actinides (M.A.), and of a few long lived fission products. It is shown that several ways to recycle plutonium are possible and that this recycling allows one to better manage minor actinides and residual uranium.
