Reuse of Plutonium in reactors

Background

We are interested in how the plutonium could be reused in reactors including existing reactors, current reactor designs and emerging reactor designs. We are also interested in the stages that would be necessary to enable the reuse of plutonium (Mixed Oxide (MOX) fuel manufacture) and any constraints that would limit how much of the plutonium inventory could be reused or how quickly it could be reused.

We are not interested in funding research associated with development of new reactor designs.
