Abstract

The Red-Impact project is a research project in the 6th framework programme of the European Commission. The main objective of the project is to assess the impact of partitioning and transmutation on geological disposal and waste management. The project started with the evaluation of a number of fuel cycle scenarios. Five scenarios are considered for the evaluations: 2 industrial scenarios and 3 innovative scenarios. Mass flow schemes have been prepared for each fuel cycle scenario and the corresponding neutronic calculations have been made. A list of performance indicators has been prepared. As a first step of the assessment, the impact of the "open cycle" scenario and of the innovative "fast neutron Gen IV" scenario, on repositories in granite and clay formations, has been evaluated.
