France will accept plutonium from Japan's Fugen reactor

Spent fuel of Japan's Fugen Advanced Thermal Reactor will be reprocessed in France. According to an agreement reached by the two governments, plutonium extracted from the fuel will remain in France while high-level waste will be returned to Japan. The agreement covers 731 spent fuel assemblies. The work is expected to start in 2023 and will be completed in 2027.
