Ah well that's because the current fleet was built not to run its own waste.

And "new reactors" obviously means new designs specifically crafted to passive walk-away safe in the unlikely event of a problem. It doesn't mean the current fleet, nor those being added to the current fleet (which are still 'old' designs).

All new solutions are hypothetical until they're actually built. By your reasoning we'd never build anything new, because it hasn't been built yet.
