Abstract: This study addresses the isuue of alternative pathways for breeding plutonium in a 900 MWe three loop presurized water reactor (PWR), either fueled with uranium fuel (3.5% U-235) or with mixed fuel (20% MOX). This paper investigates whether it would be possible to produce plutonium by breeding it at the walls of a PWR vessel and in the guide thimble
