  1. Hitachi teams with US universities to research ways to burn transuranics in boiling water reactors

    Hitachi has teamed with the University of California Berkley, University of Michigan and MIT to find a better way to dispose of long-lived transuranic elements. The company is pursuing a second round of research that will explore technology to use transuranics in boiling water reactor fuel. By removing transuranics, the project hopes to improve storage safety and reduce the decay period of spent fuel. Along with uranium, transuranics could then fuel commercial reactors that would produce energy and fissionable material. The new technology could be incorporated into existing reactor designs using the same non-core components of traditional GE-Hitachi boiling water reactors (BWRs). In this second round of research, the team hopes to apply more accurate methods of analysis to evaluate the potential safety and performance of the technology.
