Subcritical fission systems driven by external neutron sources have been proposed as a possible approach to incinerate long-lived nuclear waste and at the same time as a tool to test physics and engineering aspects of future generation critical reactors based on fast neutrons. External drivers may be accelerators or in principle even fusion devices. I will discuss the motivations for considering this kind of nuclear systems and the main physical aspects behind their operation.
