From page 83...
... Uranium and fission products would be disposed of as with thermal recycling. This strategy requires a significant, but minority, fraction of nuclear power plants to be fast reactors, which are being researched by the Generation IV Nuclear Energy Systems initiative.
From page 84...
... Depending on the future evolution and use of nuclear energy, particularly if nuclear energy is replaced in the longer term with other energy sources, most of these transuranics could also require geologic disposal when the fast reactors are decommissioned. The newer recycling processes would, if adopted, impact security in a number of ways.
