7 Conclusions. Fuel fabrication of MOX fuels are well established processes that are applicable to fabrication of a zirconium-plutonium oxide fuel. A crucial decision in the selection of an appropriate fabrication process is whether reprocessing plutonium fuels will be required to achieve the desired burnup because reprocessing requires a nitric acid dissolvable fuel, which in turn requires the fuel to be a solid solution of plutonium with the matrix. processes and the handling of the waste streams.

The prompt coefficient would be even more negative if resonance absorption for all six erbium isotopes had been included in the calculation. These four erbium isotopes are also expected to provide additional holddown reactivity that would in turn allow |or increased plutonium rod mass Ioadings. 8 Europium Additive [PuO2(gr02) (Eu203)]. The burnable poison europium has spectral neutronic characteristics similar to those of erbium. 461 eV that should mitigate 239pu reactivity increases due to moderator thermal spectral shifts.
