Nuclear non-proliferation is a matter of world-wide importance. Therefore, the whole research reactor world is working together to achieve the best results. HERACLES represents the European efforts - but we're not alone!
Minimisation of highly enriched Uranium in the civil nuclear fuel cycle is a long standing effort. In its last phase, the most difficult task is tackled: Conversion of High Performance Research Reactors.
HERACLES comprises all major European research reactor fuel developers: Operators of high performance neutron sources as well as fuel manufacturers. See who we are and what we do.
Nuclear non-proliferation is not just a mission for us. It is an effort that includes the whole world. The European Commission, US Department of Energy and many others support our work.
