Abstract

Nuclear reprocessing is not necessary for sustainability of resources, nor is it economically beneficial in either re-ducing the cost of nuclear power or the cost of nuclear waste storage. Re-processing is however, viable for re-ducing or lessening the effects of nu-clear waste storage on the environ-ment. If reprocessing is further de-veloped, it would enable nuclear power to become a major source of energy in the United States, without the presence of consequence of large amounts of nuclear waste.
