- Isotopic enrichment scenarios using cryogenic distillation were developed for a near-term D-T burning fusion-reactor design (ETF) as well as for a commercial fusion-reactor design (STARFIRE). The analytical results of studies of spent-fuel reprocessing for ETF show that isotopic enrichment can be carried out to meet fuel-purity requirements by a system consisting of a 5-column distillation cascade and two chemical equilibrators. For STARFIRE, the analytical results show that, for a fixed number of columns and chemical equilibrators in a reprocessing syste, the compositions of the recycle streams depend strongly on whether the two fuel streams (plasma exhaust and blanket) are processed separately or mixed and then processed as a single stream.
