N2 - The potential to incinerate minor actinides (MA) in a sub-critical accelerator-driven system (ADS) is a subject of study in several countries where nuclear power plants are present. The performance of the MYRRHA experimental ADS, as to the transmutation of Am and Cm in the inert matrix fuel (IMF) samples consisting of 40 vol.% (Cm0.1Am0.5Pu0.4)O1.88 fuel and 60 vol.% MgO matrix with a density of 6.077 g cm3 in three various spectrum regions, were analysed at the belgian nuclear research centre SCK Æ CEN. The ALEPH code system currently under development at SCK Æ CEN was used to carry out this study.
