Racks for nuclear fuel rods inside an atomic power station. Fuel for nuclear reactors is kept inside clindrical aluminium rods in pelletised form for easy insertion and withdrawal from the reactor core. Once the fuel elements are exhausted, they are transported to a reprocessing facility where they are split open and the fuel pellets collected for disposal of the fission products and enrichment of the remaining material.
