The nuclear fuel cycle, also called nuclear fuel chain, is the progression of nuclear fuel through a series of differing stages.

It consists of steps in the front end, which are the preparation of the fuel, steps in the service period in which the fuel is used during reactor operation, and steps in the back end, which are necessary to safely manage, contain, and either reprocess or dispose of.

The back end of the nuclear fuel cycle involves managing the spent fuel after irradiation. For Synatom, this entails all the steps between draining the nuclear units ' spent fuel pools and final storage. Period in the spent fuel pool.

The Japanese policy on the back-end of the nuclear fuel cycle is still unpredictable in the aftermath of the accident. Therefore, research and development for enhancing the safety of various processes involved in nuclear energy production are being actively pursued worldwide.4/5(3).

Part two goes on to explore materials mining, enrichment, fuel element design and fabrication for the uranium and thorium nuclear fuel cycle. The impact of nuclear reactor design and operation on fuel element irradiation is the focus of part three, including water and gas-cooled reactors, along with CANDU and Generation IV designs.

The nuclear fuel cycle: industrial processes which involve the production of electricity from uranium in nuclear power reactors. Electricity is created by using the heat generated in a nuclear reactor to produce steam and drive a turbine connected to a generator. Fuel removed from a reactor, after it has reached the end of its useful life, can be reprocessed to produce new fuel.

Spent nuclear fuel and high-level waste from the fuel cycle of commercial nuclear power plants represent a small proportion of the radioactive waste produced globally by different industries, but they account for the greatest radioactivity content and longevity.

issue for the sustainability of nuclear energy. The overall objective of the workshop on “The Back-End of the Fuel Cycle in a 1 GWe Nuclear Scenario” was to investigate alternative options for the back-end of the fuel cycle and to assess their capability to enhance the sustainability of nuclear power in the long term, to and beyond.

Sustainable nuclear power needs a sustainable nuclear fuel cycle. The increasing use of nuclear power puts stringent demands on fuel cycle activities and on understanding the behaviour of materials used in nuclear reactors.

The review has been prepared based on threeFile Size: 1MB. This chapter discusses the resolution of certain uncertainties that exist within both the front end and the back end of a fuel cycle.

At the front end of the fuel cycle, the cost uncertainties are mainly related to the difficulty of estimating the future rate of nuclear capacity expansions.

China intends to become self-sufficient in nuclear power plant capacity, and production of nuclear still relies on foreign suppliers for all stages of the fuel cycle. As China rapidly increases the number of new reactors, it has also initiated a number of domestic nuclear facility projects, often in cooperation with foreign nuclear suppliers, to meet its nuclear fuel needs.

Background. Nuclear fuel cycle consists of a number of steps which are critical in supporting a nuclear power programme.

This included fuel supply-related activities in the front end and used or spent fuel-related activities in the back end. Reliable and accurate statistical data on worldwide nuclear fuel cycle activities is desired by the nuclear community for national policy making.

The front end of the nuclear fuel cycle starts with ore extraction in the mines and ends with the delivery of the enriched uranium to the nuclear fuel assembly producer. From uranium extraction to yellow cake Uranium is a metal that is pretty widespread in the earth's crust. It is found in the ores developed in open-cast mines or tunnels.

In addition, the Academy’s recommendations on the back-end of the nuclear fuel cycle are reflected in the report of the U.S. President’s Blue Ribbon Commission on America’s Energy Future. Project Information. Nuclear fuel cycle. The nuclear fuel cycle typically involves the following steps: (1) finding and mining the uranium ore; (2) refining the uranium from other elements; (3) enriching the uranium content to 3–5%; (4) fabricating fuel elements; (5) interim storage and cooling of spent fuel; (6) reprocessing of spent fuel to recover uranium and plutonium (optional); (7) fabricating.
