I knew there would be other restraints...I never thought of the "rare earths".
"Dysprosium has emerged as the mineral most vital to clean energy industries yet most vulnerable to supply disruptions, the report said."
Gadolinium is a rare earth...are there any similar restraints with the nuclear industry expansion?

"He added that he expected that a rare earth shortage would slow the overall adoption of new rare earth technologies by clean energy industries for at least the next five years."

Another load of crap. Recycling is not a solution & it does not utilize all of the spent fuel. Just another lie to assuage the gullible public into accepting nuclear power w/all its inherent risks & danger.
What the French do is not economicallty feasable as we are not a European-style socialism w/state run services-more lies. Since it has been used in weapons production it is unclear what is being done w/it.
"The reprocessed uranium, which constitutes the bulk of the spent fuel material, can in principle also be re-used as fuel, but that is only economic when uranium prices are high."-wiki
