Nuclear Fuel - From Cradle to Grave (10)


Since the 1950s, nuclear reactor designs have continued to evolve, from the earliest Generation I prototype designs to the Generation II designs that have operated safely over the past 40 years. The latest Generation III designs recently introduced, e.g. the European Pressurised Reactor (EPR), incorporate the lessons learned from earlier designs and reduce plant costs while enhancing safety and security. Today’s research on the next Generation IV focuses on additional goals of passive safety, proliferation resistance and nuclear waste minimisation, as well as broader goals such as cogeneration for process heat applications.
