Re: DFR: the Dual-Fluid Reactor vid It can eat all the fuels, including old fuel rods that have to be disposed off.
It can separate out for us various nuclear products used for medicine and more fission use. It does leave waste, but the waste only stays radioctive for 1 century for most of it, and 3 centuries for roughly 10% of it.
It seems too good to be true! I kept waiting for the usual "fusion ending" - you know: "in perhaps 10 years..."
But they didn't make me wait. It's still being researched - seven years in, now. Well, they have reason to work.
As the "big man" said as he began his talk - Germany is turning off its nukes and has decided not to use its coal plants. Heck, it may have dynamited its coal plants!
