Characteristics of minor actinides
Quantities of minor actinides produced annually in the fuel of a conventional pressurized water reactor. The fuel has undergone a standard combustion (burn-up) of 33 Gigawatt per day and retrieved after 3 years in the reactor core. These quantities are quoted for one ton and the 23 tons of the annual consumption of uranium. The table quotes also the half-life of these elements and their dose factor that estimates their potential toxicity.
