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, the LEU FOREvER and the EU-QUALIFY projects, which are supported by the European Union through HORIZON 2020 grants. These are three of our major efforts in the upcoming years.
