Magnox and AGR. The objective of UK fuel cycles has been to maximise energy production, while minimising costs and effects on the environment. To this end UO2 is recycled in AGRs and the AGR and Magnox fuel cycles have been harmonised. About 15,000 t of reprocessed Magnox uranium has been recycled, re-enriched and used in the production of 1500 t of AGR fuel (Ion and Bonser, 1997). Considerable experience has therefore been amassed on manufacturing fuel from recycled spent fuel.
