GNEP (Global Nuclear Energy Partnership) has the objectives for a recycling program to reduce nuclear waste and reduce the risk of proliferation. These goals are important for the perception of the nuclear industry and for the industry to have a successful future. A fast reactor is much better suited for these goals than the existing Light Water Reactors or the development of an Advanced Light Water Reactor. The S-PRISM reactor is a fast reactor design by GE that is cost-effective and feasible for implementation, due to its low cost for design certification. The GNEP program has the ability to achieve its objectives for a recycling program by implementing the S-PRISM reactor.
