Expert Group on Reactor-based Plutonium Disposition (Completed)

The expert group will deal with the status and trends of reactor physics, fuel performance, and fuel cycle issues related to the disposition of weapons-grade plutonium as mixed oxide fuel.

Objectives

To provide NEA member countries with up-to-date information on and develop a consensus regarding:

The expert group will also provide advice to the nuclear community on the scientific and technical developments needed to meet the requirements (e.g. data, methods and validation experiments) for implementing weapons-grade plutonium disposition approaches. A co-ordination with complementary studies performed by other groups will be established.
