ABSTRACT
The article discusses the use of nuclear reprocessing in Japan as it appears that the government remains engaged to the use of plutonium fuel. It states the visit of an international delegation of scientists in the country led by Princeton University professor Frank von Hippel in an effort to abandon the civilian plutonium fuel-cycle program. It mentions that the nuclear reactors in Japan were shut down following the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011.
