This document, which is a contractual deliverable of the PDS-XADS project identified with the number 72, deals with the preliminary analysis oriented to investigate the transmutation capability of the XADS care charged with innovative composite U-free oxide fuels characterized by a large content of minor actinides. The calculations were performed by means of a special procedure MECONG that makes use of some ERANOS modules. The fuel composition was provided by CEA and it is the same that was used far He-cooled XADS analyses. For each care attention was focused on the trend of the reactivity, minor actinides transmutation rate and plutonium bum-up rate in each cyc1e of 930 days and during the multi-recycling. The preliminary results of this study show that there is a good compromise between care and transmutation performances far a XADS care having a power ranging between 200 MWth and 400 MWth.
