Nuclear Fuels Reprocessing Coalition

The Center has been managing the Nuclear Fuels Reprocessing Coalition (NFRC) blog(s) for 9 years. The blog has taken three different forms over the years (2nd blog).  NFRC was started by co-chairs Norris McDonald and Clinton Crackel.

The NFRC was established in 2002 to promote the construction and operation of nuclear reprocessing facilities. NFRC promotes reprocessing commercial spent nuclear fuel that is generated by commercial nuclear power plants.

Reprocessing dramatically reduces the amount of high-level radioactive waste that would have to be stored in a geologic repository. We also support reprocessing plutonium and highly enriched uranium from nuclear warheads into fuel for use in commercial nuclear power plants.
