Advanced nuclear fuel cycles to improve the safety, sustainability and economics of nuclear energy are under development internationally. P&T is one the candidate technologies to help reduce the heat, radiotoxicity and volume of radioactive waste. Recent developments indicate the need for embedding P&T strategies into advanced fuel cycles considering both waste management and economic issues.
In order to give experts a forum to present and discuss state-of-the-art developments in the field of P&T and advanced nuclear fuel cycles, the NEA has been organising biennial information exchange meetings on actinide and fission product partitioning and transmutation since 1990.
