IN BRIEF: Sellafield operating life extended

Sellafield could have its operating life extended by the need to treat about 13 tonnes of very hazardous fuel owned by the UK Atomic Energy Authority. Diluting the high-plutonium content fuel with commercial reactor fuel and reprocessing it is one of three options drawn up by the UKAEA for the reprocessing plant, owned by British […]
