Abstract: THIS STUDY IS AIMED AT DETERMINING THE ACCEPTABILITY OF EACH NATURAL ELEMENT AS A CONSTITUENT FOR FUSION REACTOR MATERIALS, FOR THE PURPOSE OF LIMITING THE LONG-LIVED RADIOACTIVITY, SO THAT THE MATERIAL COULD BE RECYCLED, OR DISPOSED BY NEAR-SURFACE BURIAL. THE RESULTS SHOW THAT THERE IS LITTLE INCENTIVE FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF ELEMENTALLY TAILORED STEELS FOR THE PURPOSE OF RECYCLING. MORE INTERESTING AND FEASIBLE IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A STEEL WITH AN OPTIMIZED COMPOSITION THAT WOULD ALLOW US TO REACH SHALLOW LAND BURIAL CONDITIONS EVEN FOR THE FIRST WALL.
