Accelerator-driven system also know as an 'energy amplifier' by Wikipedia is basically a way to speed up the half-life of nuclear waste while generating energy as a byproduct. Now it seems Belgian Nuclear Research Centre has put it to the test and gotten some interesting results. Don't think this means a nuclear golden age in the U.S. even if it works your neighbors will never allow the stuff to be trucked to the machine from your local plant."
