GE (General Electric) Hitachi is proposing the Advanced Recycling Center (ARC). It is an ectrometallurgical separation process that would make a new form of fuel from spent fuel rods without separating plutonium. This would be used in the Fourth Generation PRISM sodium-cooled fast reactors. This proposed "first of kind" system would cost about $3.2 billion and would be completed by 2020.
