English term or phrase: used fuel
spent fuel vs. used fuel

I am currently translation "spent fuel" as "combustível queimado" in Portuguese. Is that correct? And if so, what would be the appropriate translation for used fuel (or are the synonymous?)?

combustível usado


Explanation:
I don't think the fuel in theis case is burned. Rather, its capability of undergoing fission is lost. So, I would use the word "usado " instead of queimado. And, yes, used and spent" are synonimous, in this case.
