Generation-IV nuclear reactors need to meet the technology goals of an environmental friendliness, efficient uranium resource utilization, improved economics and enhanced safety,
and proliferation resistance. The Sodiumcooled Fast Reactor (SFR) is the most technologically developed of the six Generation-IV systems.
The primary mission for the SFR is the management of high-level wastes, and SFRs can reduce the radiotoxicity of high-level radioactive wastes by a factor of about 1,000.
SFRs can also increase the use of natural uranium by a factor of 100. KAERI is developing SFR technologies according to a long-term technology development roadmap,
and is actively participating in the Gen-IV International Forum for the early commercialization of SFRs.
