POSTER Track 7. Sustainability: Economics, Environment, and Proliferation Poster Session


Mariia Roslaya


Transition to the system of the closed nuclear fuel cycle based on reactors on thermal and fast neutrons is an important stage of formation of two-component energy industry, which provides enhancement of efficiency of uranium resource efficiency. The closed nuclear fuel cycle at the international level can be presented both from the viewpoint of energy security and stability and from the viewpoint of increase of competitiveness of nuclear power solutions.
However, countries-owners of fast reactor technologies use different strategies of transfer to the closed fuel cycle.
By the example of fast sodium-cooled reactors and VVER, the paper will consider economic expediency of implementation of the closed fuel cycle for the purpose to provide stable ecologically clean energy.
The paper will present approaches to estimation of commercial advantages of commercial fast reactor application both within one system and in the international context, reveal drivers and limitations of commercialization from viewpoint of economic parameters over the medium term.
