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

Authors


Abstract

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.
