Can nuclear waste be reused as fuel?

    Yes. The process is very long and expensive–more expensive than just using new uranium–but used nuclear waste can be reprocessed to harness the remaining energy in the material.

    Nuclear waste can be recycled and 96% of uranium can be recovered for use in new fuel rods. However, reprocessing is very expensive and creates plutonium that some worry could be used for the production of nuclear weapons.
