Closed nuclear fuel cycle is the future of the global industry: Russian expert

The article from first post wholly supports the current Indian policy on the subject. Some variables may be faster.
Existing designs of PWR or P HWR could be run on thorium-plutonium or thorium 19.5%LEU fuel. Axial blanket could be provided at top and bottom of pins. The bundles could be designed with thorium blanket.
Next generation fuel could use U-233 recovered by reprocessing fuel as above. U-233 could also be used in lifter.

Bill Gates and China partner on world-first nuclear technology

TerraPower plan in conjunction with China is another approach to a closed cycle. It uses fast reactor approach and in situ irradiation and burning. Limited reprocessing would be required to provide initial seed for fast fission.
