The H2020 european project fuel for research reactors LEU–forever: leu fuels for medium and high power research reactors in Europe

Abstract : The minimization of proliferation risks for research reactors necessitates the reduction of the enrichment of the uranium fuels. In the EU, this conversion from high to low enriched uranium has already begun and is currently on its way towards the qualification phase. This concerns both medium and high power research reactors. Neither for medium nor for high power research reactors are off-the-shelf low enriched uranium fuel elements available. Indeed, introducing a new type of fuel element in a research reactor implies the conservation or improvement of both safety and performance on one of a kind units within specific safety legislation. The H2020 European LEU-FOREvER Project (2017-2021), associating major actors of the European research reactors field –Areva-NP, CEA, Centrum výzkumu Řež, ILL, NCBJ, SCK∙CEN, TechnicAtome, TUM, aims to foster the development of sustainable and innovative low enriched uranium fuel elements for the whole spectrum of European research reactors.
