This is an inresting idea by the IAEA Directory general and the recent annual non-proliferation conference of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace


In an exclusive BBC interview Mr ElBaradei said that he had received "a good encouraging response from the United States".Washington," he said, "was ready to offer some nuclear material to be part of the fuel bank. I got the same response from Russia. So we are hard at work," he told me. And he hopes that in the next six months or so the IAEA should be able to come up with a mechanism to enable countries to get the fuel they need and, at the same time, accept a moratorium on developing their own fuel cycle facilities.

This is a good idea.
The problem with it is that it can still be taken from the reactor and used for a weapon.
Think what N Korea did with it's nuclear power plant fuel.

This is a brilliant idea.

Though i concern over how pracitcal it would actually be. If a country was using nuclear power and got all of the uranium from the bank, they could slowly increase their monthly requests a few % more than they actually need, and start storing it.
