The next generation of nuclear power can make energy from nuclear waste.
" The government gave the green light to proceed with the plans for a final repository for spent nuclear fuel in Forsmark outside Östhammar. How far has a solution come in other countries and what does it take for us to have a fourth generation that can utilize spent nuclear fuel? "
2022-01-26 TV4 Interview with the KTH Nuclear Fuel Lab
The nuclear power of the future is predicted to be able to reuse nuclear fuel.
" The government is expected to announce the final repository of nuclear waste from our Swedish nuclear power plants. At the same time, research is being done on a new type of small reactor that can use today's nuclear waste as fuel and shorten the time that the waste needs to be stored for 99,000 years. This is so-called uranium nitride, a future nuclear fuel that is being developed at KTH."
