Abstract

Energy supply, environmental protection, economic feasibility, proliferation issues and safeguards of the nuclear materials, imply the development and deployment of innovative reactors (Generation III/III+ and Generation IV) and development of innovative concepts for the nuclear fuel cycle closure with the aim of an acceptable cost energy production, reducing waste volume and long term radiotoxicity. In the frame of the 7th EU-FP CP-ESFR Project, a regional (European) energy demand scenario that involves the ESFR deployment has been analysed in order to verify its sustainability, and to investigate the impact of some scenario parameters on the ESFR design, including MA recycling. Outcome of the study is the demonstration of the sustainability of both Iow and high energy demand scenarios, mainly from the viewpoint of Pu availability, ESFR deployment, reprocessing plants capacity, etc.. This report is the ENEA contribution to the deliverable SP2 DG2 of the CP ESFR project
