The Korea Atomic Energy Research Institute (KAERI) has been developing pyroprocess for the dry conditioning of PWR spent nuclear fuels since 1997. The ACPF (Advanced spent fuel Conditioning Process Facility) was developed for volume reduction research on spent PWR fuel. Several years later, the PRIDE (PyRoprocess Integrated inactive Demonstration) facility was also developed for SFR fuel utilization research by pyroprocessing. An integrated full pyroprocess was used in the PRIDE facility. Presently another pyroprocess facility, ESPF (Engineering Scale Pyroprocess Demonstration Facility), is being conceptually designed for the future demonstration of an engineering-scale pyroprocess.
