... Inert matrix fuels are a possible option to reduce separated plutonium stockpiles by burning it in LWR fleet. A high burning efficiency targeted by preventing new plutonium build-up under irradiation (U-free fuel), a proved high radiation damage and leaching resistance are fundamental...

... 17 09 2008 The inert matrix fuels are a promising option to reduce-eliminate worldwide plutonium stockpiles by burning it in LWRs. These fuels, where plutonium is hosted in a U-free inert matrix phase, may reach high burning efficiency while preventing new plutonium build-up under...
