Abstract [en]

Using fast neutron Generation IV reactors, recycling of americium and curium may become feasible. The detrimental impact of americium on safety parameters has recently been quantified in terms of a power penalty for surviving a given set of transients in sodium fast reactors. In the present paper, a review of the physical reasons for the adverse effect of americium is provided, and different Gen-IV technologies are assessed with respect to their capability of hosting americium in the fuel.
