As I understand it, this is the same idea that I came across for the first time some 20 years ago. The basic physics is sound, you put in neutrinos to change the isotope of the atoms, moving to a faster decaying path and collecting the energy instead of having it slowly decaying.

Though I must admit that I have not followed the topic closely, my impression is that the technical implementation has been harder then the physics, and that the bold ideas of using up waste has been replaced by newly mined isotopes. But I am open for correction here.
