Is There MOX In Your Future?
This year’s essay, entitled “Is There MOX In Your Future?” focuses on the status and future deployment (or not) of mixed-oxide (uranium oxide, UO2, + plutonium oxide, PuO2) fuel throughout the world. Once thought to be standard practice, MOX fuel utilization, while being advanced in some nations, has become highly controversial in others due to the rising cost of reprocessing and MOX fabrication, the difficulties in bringing new facilities on line in many areas, and the nonproliferation safeguards and other political factors associated with MOX fuel.
