Approach To This Supplement

This Supplement deals with the reprocessing and waste management portions of the nuclear fuel cycle for uranium-fueled reactors . The scope of the report is limited to the illumination of fuel reprocessing and waste management activities, and examination of the environmental impacts caused by these activities on a per-reactor basis. The approach is to select one realistic reprocessing and waste management system and to treat it in enough depth to illuminate the issues involved, the technold9y available, and the relationships of these to the nuclear fuel cycle in general and its environmental impacts.
