Roger Blomquist, ANL Nuclear Engineer At the dawn of the nuclear age, fast breeder reactors were thought of as the only practicable way to generate nuclear electricity over the long term because the known supply of uranium was small. Today, you will learn there is far more uranium. ANL has now demonstrated that fast neutron reactors are inherently safe and can also be used for disposal of nuclear waste. Breeder Power Plants extract more than a hundred times more energy from each pound of uranium mined.
