 "​Reprocessing has also emerged as a viable long term method for dealing with waste. As the name implies, the process involves taking waste and separating the useful components from those that aren’t as useful. Specifically,​ it involves taking the fissionable material out from the irradiated nuclear fuel. Concerns regarding reprocessing have largely focused around nuclear proliferation and how much easier reprocessing would allow fissionable material to spread.((A. Andrews, "​Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing:​ U.S. Policy Development,"​ CRS Report for Congress RS22542, 27 Mar 08.)) "​Reprocessing has also emerged as a viable long term method for dealing with waste.

-According to Dr. Tatsu+Speaking at one of a series of international panels on Peace and Security of Northeast Asia (2018), ​Dr. Tatsujiro Suzuki, (http://​www.recna.nagasaki-u.ac.jp/​recna/​psnanews/​22129 ) outlined possible international management options to deal with the existing large plutonium stockpile which is one of the most serious global security challenges. Four options are: 1) enhanced transparency by strengthening International Plutonium Management Guideline (INFCIRC/​549),​ 2) International Plutonium Storage, 3) International Cooperation on plutonium disposition,​ and 4) moratorium on commissioning new reprocessing facilities. RECNA, Research Centre for Nuclear Weapons Abolition, at Nagasaki University is a centre of expertise on this topic as Japan has a major plutonium processing facility. ​ As of the end of 2016, roughly 60% of it is civilian plutonium and about 97% is owned by four countries (UK 110 tons) France (65 tons) Russia (57 tons) and Japan (47 tons). ​
