GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy Advanced Recycling Center (ARC)

GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy’s Advanced Recycling Center (ARC) is designed to produce electricity by recycling the used nuclear fuel (UNF) from current nuclear power plants and the uranium discarded during enrichment. Using PRISM reactors, the ARC will be able to extract over 100 times more energy from uranium than the “once-through” fuel cycle employed by current nuclear plants. The ARC is designed to lower the cost and engineering challenges associated with UNF disposal when compared to traditional storage or reprocessing by generating significant additional electricity from what is now considered nuclear waste.
