Anonymous writes: A hybrid fission-fusion process has been developed that has can be used in some traditional Fission reactors to process radioactive waste and reduce the amount of waste produced by 99%. This process uses magnetic bottle techniques developed from fusion research. This seems like the first viable solution to the radioactive waste problem of traditional nuclear reactors. It will be interesting to see how the timing of this, which the article says should be ready for deployment in just a few years, works out with new pluggable hybrids and the GM Volt slated for a similar time line. This could be a bug breakthrough in the search for environmentally friendly energy sources.
