Abstract
Actinide material quantities and lifetime uranium ore requirements are calculated for thorium fuel cycles in pressurized-water reactors, high-temperature gas-cooled reactors, and pressure-tube heavy-water reactors, and are compared with similar quantities for reference uranium-plutonium fueling in light-water reactors and in fast breeders. Flowsheets are presented for national-international fuel cycles for safeguard controls, including dispersed national reactors fueled with thorium and denatured uranium. Long-term radioactivity properties of high-level radioactive wastes are compared. Also compared are the production of 14C, 3H, 232U, and other activated radionuclides from these reactors and fuel cycles.
