Abstract: 

In the paper with the aim to incinerate minor actinides (neptunium, americium and curium) the possible ways of increasing the mean energy of neutrons in nuclear power installations are considered. These ways may be following: the usage of slow moderating coolant from lead–208 in innovative fast reactors, optimization of core dimensions in critical and subcritical reactors, the usage of high enriched fuel and at last considering the possibility of minor actinides incineration in neutron spectra of uranium235 or plutonium fission.
