This committee has sought to keep separate the requirements and activities of the ANL-E R&D from those of the ANL-W D&D program. There are obvious overlaps. Nevertheless, it must be kept in mind that this committee has concluded that the ANL-E R&D program requires experimental proof or demonstration, and it is logical to use EBR-II spent fuel in that pursuit while acknowledging that the D&D of EBR-II does not require a successful electrometallurgical technology since other cleanup options may be available.
