The process could take many years, but developing a new LEU
fuel is essential to ensuring optimal performance.
NNSA is now developing a new LEU
fuel that will allow the remaining five reactors to operate.
In some cases, a new LEU fuel needs to be developed a process that can take many years.
The preliminary safety analysis report shows the NRC that the reactor can safely operate using the new LEU fuel.
GAO was asked to examine (1) the status of the remaining research reactors in converting to LEU fuel, (2) DOE's progress in developing new LEU
fuels for reactors where conversion is not yet technically feasible, (3) DOE's progress in developing LEU for the production of medical isotopes, and (4) the status of DOE and Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) efforts to improve security at research reactors.
The team fabricated and tested the new LEU
fuel to ensure it would meet the reactors needs and worked together to overcome complex logistical hurdles to ship the LEU fuel from China to Ghana.
The new LEU
core will enable Jamaica to continue this important research while minimizing the risk posed by the presence of nuclear materials.
The Republic of Korea is a key partner in the international effort to develop new LEU fuels that allow for the conversion of the most challenging civilian research reactors, said Harrington.
Korea is a proud partner in the global effort to minimize the use of HEU and is committed to our ongoing partnership on the development of new LEU fuels to enable HEU minimization.
Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, and Austrian IPTV technology company Ocilion today announced that Stafag Communications AG has deployed the integrated Ocilion and Verimatrix solution to enable its new Leu
