MAIORINO, José Rubens; SANTOS, Adimir dos y PEREIRA, Sérgio Anéfalos. The utilization of accelerators in subcritical systems for energy generation and nuclear waste transmutation: the world status and a proposal of a national R&D program. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 2003, vol.33, n.2, pp. 267-272. ISSN 1678-4448. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-97332003000200018.
A summary of the world status on R&D related to the utilization of Accelerator Driven System (ADS) for energy generation and mainly for transmutation of long lived nuclear waste is presented. A proposal to start a TechnicalWorking Group (TWG) in Brazil to prepare a Road Map having as a final goal an experimental facility to utilize an accelerator in basic and applied research; products and services and R&D in energy generation and transmutation are presented.
