Why is Lead Bismuth Eutectic Important?
• Changing national security stances have led to reexamination of nuclear waste reprocessing
• Dangerous actinides can be separated and
• Transmuted into safer products, creating a waste form dangerous for only hundreds of years, in addition to the production (up to 1/3 of the original fission energy) of useful energy
• Non-moderating coolants or spallation targets for production of fast neutrons is required for transmutation
• Russian experience with LBE coolants in their nuclear submarine fleet makes LBE an attractive possible transmutation coolant technology
• Corrosion of steel by LBE is an important sticking point in the utilization of LBE
