Just curious, has anyone heard anything lately regarding DUPIC, the direct use of PWR waste in CANDU reactors? What is going on? Also a couple of questions relating to the process: Since the name DUPIC specifically refers to PWR waste, does that imply that there is some issue with BWR waste that would render it not desirable for use in CANDU’s? The Canadians were also talking about an abbreviated dry re-processing method. In that process they would simply crush the waste fuel pellets to release gaseous fission products and then re-sinter them into CANDU pellets. I’m assuming that the reason for this is to allow for greater burn-up of the fuel. Is that correct? How far could a CANDU burn down the fissile content of these LWR wastes?
