+ - New Nuclear Reactors Destroy Atomic Waste->

Submitted by separsons
separsons (1765004) writes "A group of French scientists are developing a nuclear reactor that burns up actinides, highly radioactive uranium isotopes. And they're not the only ones trying to eliminate atomic waste: Researchers at the University of Texas in Austin are working on a fusion-fission reactor. The reactor destroys waste by firing streams of neutrons at it, reducing atomic waste by up to 99 percent!"
