Response to bananas (Reply #5)

14. What about the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA)?

In 2008 they rated the proliferation risks of the:
Once-Through Fuel Cycle
Full Actinide Recycle
Partial Actinide Recycle

in 6 categories.

The Full Actinide Recycle approach is rated in the category
"Fuel Cycle:Inherent proliferation risk of technology"

as
"Highest risk: Capable of separating weapons-usable material, though some modification may be needed depending on the separations technology used."


And in the category
"Material Attractiveness"

as
Highest: Removal of fission products and separation of actinides greatly reduces barriers to theft, misuse, or further processing, even without separation of pure plutonium. Fast reactor fuels have higher concentration of weapons-usable materials.


For the category
Safeguards

as
Highest cost and difficulty: Separation processes require continuous monitoring against diversion and novel bulk materials present new measurement challenges.



Whose judgement is that?
National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA)
"NNSA has the best science, technology and engineering in the world, and we are fortunate to have dedicated professionals who are truly leaders in their fields working every day to promote our nuclear security mission."

Can you believe the gall of those antinuclear idiots and the degree they've infiltrated the government?
