Title: Fuel Cycles. Production of Uranium and the Central Electric Program and Related Financial Effort; CYCLES DE COMBUSTIBLES. PRODUCTION D'URANIUM, PROGRAMME DE CENTRALES ELECTRIQUES ET EFFORT FINANCIER CORRESPONDANT

Abstract

A number of different possible programs for nuclear power stations of various types are presented. These programs are established in relation to the use of uranium and thorium in amounts similar to those that shall probably be produced in France during the next fifteen years. As it is possible to draw plans for nuclear power stations in which several processes exist simultaneously, an unlimited number of variations being possible this survey is limited to successive analysis of the results obtained by use of only one of each of the following three systems: natural uranium-graphite, natural uranium-heavy water, and enriched uraniumpressurized light water. All schemes are considered as assemblages of these three simple systems. The efffects of plutonium recycling are also considered for each system. The electric power installed and the capacity of stations situated up-stream and down-stream have been calculated by this method and an attempt has been made to establish the sum to be invested during the fifteen years necessary for the launching of the programs scheduled. A table of timing for the investments groups the results obtained. Considering the fact that French capital shall not be unlimited during the comming years, this way of presenting the results seemsmore » to be interesting. (Auth)« less
