Actinides in Spent Nuclear Fuel

The actinides contained in the spent nuclear fuel are potentially a valuable resource.

There are major and minor Actinides present in the nuclear fuel. The major actinides include Uranium and Plutonium and the minor actinides include Neptunium, Americium and Curium.

Major actinides are most valuable resources for our nuclear power programme and for strategic application whereas minor actinides have medical, industrial and strategic application.
