It's nice to see progress being made.
Currently used reactors only burn about 2% of their fuel and are ancient designs. Some more modern designs are not only safer but some designs can burn that waste and turn the byproducts into something much safer while providing carbon free energy and reducing weapons grade nuclear material. Unfortunately most designs in use stem from weapons programs while the designs that couldn't help produce weapons were abandoned even after being proven to work and having little risk.
Still no place to put nuclear waste that remains deadly for a thousand years and they want to build more reactors? Brilliant.
