It is clear that ADS offer some interesting additional features that complement the conventional critical reactor technologies that currently exist or that may be considered in the future. However, there would need to be significant investment, research and

Investigation of different fuel cycles and energy systems for different applications Further experimental programmes in demonstrating ADS feasibility Extension of nuclear data into the ADS applications Increased international collaboration and information exchange

development in ADS technology if these systems are to become available commercially. Future activities that could be foreseen are outlined in Table 13.6. Clearly ADS would be subject to the same economic competitive pressures that face existing nuclear plant. Similarly ADS would have to meet the increasingly more stringent safety and environmental standards that are being imposed for licensing.
