Description

Breeding is expected to become a necessity in about 40 years and in view of the 20 years development timoe and 30 years service life of breeder reactors, development of such reactors at present is timely. In plutonium breeders, the specific power is inherentiy lew and the doubling timoe long. This seems to prevent such breeders from furnishing a large fraction oi the energy demands of the expanding economy from uranium recoverable at or about present cost. U/sup 233/ breeders can be designed to the requirements of low inventory and short doubling time, but the aqueous homogeneous reactor seemos to ... continued below
