Abstract: Electrorefining of irradiated metallic fuels (burn-up ~ 7 at%) in a LiCl-KCl melt at 773 K was successfully demonstrated: Actinides in the fuels were anodically dissolved in the melt. Both a selective U metal deposition on a solid cathode and a grouped recovery of actinides, U, Pu, Np, Am, and Cm, in a liquid Cd cathode were confirmed. The behavior of fission products, such as lanthanides, alkali metals, alkaline earth metals, and noble metals, were also investigated. It was found that the behaviors of actinides and fission products in the electrorefining of the fuels with ~ 7 at% burn-up were similar to those in electrorefining of fuels with ~ 2.5 at % burn-up.
