... Nuclear Hydrogen Initiative The NHI program is aimed at developing new technologies to produce hydrogen and oxygen with high efficiency using nuclear energy. The main focus of the program is on the use of high-temperature process heat as the main energy input for the production of hydrogen, which promises significantly higher efficiency and lower cost than conventional low-temperature electrolysis.
From page 79...
... With regard to the other Generation IV nuclear energy system programs, the committee recommends the following: Recommendation 3-9. Within the Generation IV program, NE should modestly and reasonably support long-term base technology options other than the VHTR and the SFR, particularly for actinide management, using thermal and fast reactors and appropriate fuels.

... , in part to consider alternative spent fuel management options. This program built on earlier work funded by the DOE that was evaluated by a 1996 NRC report, "Nuclear Wastes: Technologies for Separations and Transmutation." The Advanced Fuel Cycle Initiative (AFCI)
From page 82...
... In the United States, processes were worked on, beginning in 2002, under the AFCI, which itself grew out of the Accelerator Transmutation of Waste program, initiated in 1999. This effort was under the direction of DOE's Office of Nuclear Energy (NE)
