Text Box: Nuclear energy is the second largest producer of electricity in the United States. One major problem regarding the usage of fission and fusion is that the fact that the wastes often have long radioactive half-lives. Too much waste is going into the underground storage areas, such as Yucca Mountain.
After fission, the plutonium can be returned to the reactors and reused. Our solution is a plutonium-reprocessor that will separate the useful plutonium from the rest of the waste. This will highly reduce the amount of radioactive materials that are dangerous to humans.
