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.
The HERACLES consortium has launched the HERACLES-CP and the LEU FOREvER projects, which are supported by the European Union through HORIZON 2020 grants. These are two 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.
