Last quote by Catherine Cesarsky

Today, we put liquid in the reactors, to slow the neutrons down, so that certain reactions can work better, but the result is that we burn only 0.7% of the uranium. If we could use fast neutrons, we could multiply by 50 or by 100 the amount of energy that we could produce from one bar of uranium. There will always be some part of the waste which will not be reusable, but that will be really really small volumes, in the framework of generation IV.feedback
