(Argonne National Laboratory, Charles Till, Yoon Chang) USofA - PLENTIFUL ENERGY - The Story of the Integral Fast Reactor. book30.Dec.2019
Charles Till and Yoon Chang provide an excellent history of the development of the Integral Fast Reactor Project and the political decisions to stop this outstanding energy technology in the United States. The world is going to use this technology, while the United States is being deprived due to the ideological decisions of a few.
This is an excellent educational video about the key technical points of fast breeder reactors, namely the fuel design and fuel recycling. The video is about the highly successful Integral Fast Reactor program at Argonne National Laboratory in the 1980s and 1990s. Anti-nuclear activists worked for decades to stop breeder reactor development. They succeeded through President Bill Clinton. The Russians and Chinese are pressing ahead to use this technology. Never has a leader of any nation abandoned such a vast amount of energy resources as did the United States when it stopped the fast breeder reactor program in the 1990s.

Leonard Koch - Pioneer in fast breeder reactor technology. Video interview about Experimental Breeder Reactor I, EBR I.
The depleted uranium from the enrichment program can power all of the electrical energy needs of the United States for over 700 years at 1994 levels. This is using fast reactor and spent fuel recycling technologies developed at Argonne National Laboratory.
