Solution Monitoring Evaluated by Proliferation Risk Assessment and Fuzzy Optimization Analysis for Safeguards in a Reprocessing Process

Figure 7

Fuzzy optimization for safeguards measures in the reprocessing process. The performance of safeguards measures and the initial and running cost for the safeguards measures are compared in the typical three stages; dissolution, solvent extraction, and concentration stages. As increasing the throughput in the horizontal axis, the optimal choice for the safeguards measures is changed according to the assumed dependency of the performance and cost on the throughput.
