Abstract

The transmutation of Iodine-129 in accelerator driven system (ADS) is studied. The sodium iodide assembly loadings inside the core of ADS and in the surrounding core region are considered. The introduced concept of ADS with a power of 800 MWt is able to transmute 250 kg/y of minor actinides (MAs) and 46 kg/y of Iodine-129 that supports ten PWRs. The initial loading masses of MAs and I-129 in ADS were equal to 3810 kg and 824 kg, respectively.
