Recycling Nuclear Waste Fuel Rods

What potential effects could this have on the commercial energy market? Well, the US alone has around 67,500 tonnes of nuclear waste from the last 5 decades of atomic energy. When combined with the rest of the world’s waste, the MSR research team believe that would power the entire planet until 2083; a truly incredible prospect.

As for the likelihood of business energy suppliers being excited enough to invest in having an MSR of their own? Early figures say that – at current market prices – all that untapped energy in current stocks of nuclear waste is worth $7.1 trillion. So probably just enough to excite at least one big energy company, then.
