A large reduction in the radioactive toxicity of waste...
The reduction in toxicity obtained by transmuting all the minor actinides into fission products is enormous (green area). The actinides are transmuted into much more short-lived fission products (curve C). The curve is obtained by dividing the contribution of the fission products to the spent fuel of a PWR reactor (curve A) by the ratio of the fissile masses: 35 kg per tonne of uranium on the one hand and 800 g of actinides to undergo fission on the other. In principle this reduction is of several orders of magnitude.
