M. Ragheb - Energy production by fast breeding remains the main goal of the Liquid Metal Fast Reactor (LMFR) to ensure a sustainable long term fissile fuel supply. In addition, the use of LMFRs allows the recycling of the Minor Actinides content of nuclear waste burning them to produce energy and reduce the amounts of disposed waste. Another advantage of the LMFR is its higher thermal efficiency compared with water-cooled reactors.
