REPROCESSING ABILITY OF HIGH DENSITY FUELS FOR
RESEARCH AND TEST REACTORS
A. Gay, COGEMA BR/DT

The development of a new high density fuel is becoming a key issue for Research Reactors operators. Such a new fuel should be a Low Enrichment Uranium (LEU) fuel with a high density, to improve present in core performances. It must be compatible with the reprocessing in an industrial plant to provide o steady back-end solution.
Within the framework of a workgroup CEA/CERCA/COGEMA on new fuel development for Research Reactors, COGEMA has performed an evaluation of the reprocessing ability of some fuel dispersants selected as good candidates. The results will allow US to classify these fuel dispersants from a reprocessing ability point of view.
