Well the main reactor design that is most effective at doing this right now is the Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor, a type of Molten Salt Reactor that uses a molten fuel mix of thorium, salt, fluoride, and radioactive material. After the initial activation of the reactor, which requires use of fissile elements (ones that theoretically could be refined into nuclear weapons), any material that is radioactive essentially, from spent fuel rods to uranium processed from sea water (ocean run off means incredibly high levels of uranium in our oceans that can be refined for a kilo of uranium at a cost of approx. $100 US, though don't worry, you won't get advanced radiation sickness from being in there too long, you'll just be all raisiny). The only problems with this reactor is the high initial expenses, and the high environmental impact in the construction phase (due to our current reliance on oil to operate most construction vehicles and power most aluminum plants). I have been doing my thesis paper on the subject of these reactors, and when I saw this post I though I would share my knowledge with all you wonderful people.

We have actually developed a method of basically recycling old fuel rods. Many of the old, dead, plutonium and uranium fuel rods, have been sitting in storage for many years now, and if you didn't know, plutonium and uranium has a very ******* long half life. And even though it can't be used in reactors, they can still be used in the production of weapons of mass destruction, in either nuclear bombs or hydrogen bombs, if they are processed a certain way, and this **** is just sitting there. By reprocessing the used fuel rods, we can actually recover the radioactive material needed for the fuel rods to be usable, and by doing so, we can accelerate the rate of decay in the fuel rod waste, that loses it's radioactivity much faster, and decays incredibly fast after 100 years. It's pretty ******* amazing, what we've managed to accomplish. A far cry from 25 years ago, when we were burying nuclear waste in the desert, or dumping it in the ocean, because we had nowhere to put it.

For everyone who is a fan of nuclear power, are uncertain about what to think, or simply want to educate themselves: Pandoras Promise (it's on netflix)

It's made by Environmentalists who were originally opposed to nuclear power, so they tackle all the normal arguments against nuclear power without being condescending or hostile (except a bit with Helen Caldicott, but she's so ****** up by herself that it just comes across as comedy relief).

Really, at this point Nuclear is the only viable green alternative, and coal is just so deadly that it's ridiculous.

well the thing is that after we split uranium the waste has far less energie to harvest than the original uranium not enough to actualy make profit of doing so. So we do have to keep the waste we create after we split the Uranium-atoms. Thats why its says we "can" let other reactors run on the waste from older reactors but its completly impractical. On the other hand if we are able to create a fusion reactor this would pretty much solve a lot of our power problems cause here, after we can fused our H-atoms together we still have the resulting helium to fuse them together. But just like befor it creates far less power than fusing H-Atoms.

Look up LFTR nuclear reactors. They are the future.

Nuclear energy is cool and all, it just worries me that if someone ***** up we could have another Chernobyl to deal with.

Or we could just go with the Thorium Reactors. Those are cool too, and don't have nearly as much toxic waste.
