THE NUCLEAR FUEL CYCLE

The nuclear fuel cycle describes the life cycle of the main radioactive materials in the
fabrication, consumption and disposal of nuclear reactor fuel. It is referred to as
‘closed’ when components of spent fuel are reused for the production of new fuel;
and as ‘open’ when spent fuel is mainly destined for disposal.
