Abstract

This paper proposes a water breeder system in which two reactors operate in symbiosis, one using **2**3**; 8U-**2**3**3U as fuel and producing plutonium, and the other using **2**3**2Th-Pu as fuel and producing **2**3**3U. Thus, each reactor feeds the other. From the breeding point of view, the combined system has an advantage over the separate **2**3**8U-Pu and **2**3**3Th-**2**3**3U cycles.
