The Fast Breeder Reactor: A source of abundant power for the future



The fast breeder reactor is essential to meet the future energy needs of our society. This capability derives from three fundamental factors: (1) the fast breeder reactor maximizes the utilization of valuable natural resources and as a direct result can supply energy to an expanding industrial society for many generations; (2) the fast breeder reactor can achieve this goal while protecting the environment better than any other currently available economic method of generating power; and (3) the fast breeder is based upon established technology and is therefore ready for commercial introduction.
