Submission + - New reactor to recycle nuclear waste

w42w42 writes: This article details a $405-million DOE project to develop a process that can use what is now considered nuclear waste to generate electricity. It is supposed to "...transform nuclear leftovers into fuel for a new breed of reactors.
