Addressing one of the last remaining concerns in the civil nuclear fuel cycle. Europe's High Performance Research Reactors have teamed up in a common initiative, "HERACLES", to support the world-wide non-proliferation efforts by minimizing their usage of HEU material.
Nuclear non-proliferation is a topic that has gained much attention over the recent years. The HERACLES facilities do see the importance of this topic and therefore support the world-wide non-proliferation efforts by minimizing their need for such material.
Uranium-Molybednum, a new high density fuel, is our answer to proliferation concerns. See where we are today and where we are going.
In 2015, the HERACLES consortium has launched the HERACLES-CP project which is supported by the European Union through a HORIZON2020 grant. HERACLES-CP is one of our major efforts in the upcoming years.
Meet us at the RRFM 2016 in Berlin! All members of the consortium will be present.
The HERACLES-CP kick-off meeting in Brussels has been a huge success.
The public presentation of the HERACLES-CP project is available.
