    reprocessed nuclear waste

    Dear teachers,

    Would you help to me to make the proper choice of the interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    German police reported violent clashes with anti-nuclear protesters seeking to stop a train carrying reprocessed nuclear waste on Sunday.

    reprocess = use again after processing; process (something, especially spent nuclear fuel) again or differently, typically in order to reuse it

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V

    Yes, but I'd omit the words I've underlined. I have just finished a meal that included several processed foods.
