In 1994, a branch program entitled “Design of Fuel Elements and Fuel Assemblies with 20% Uranium-235 Enriched Fuel for Research Reactor Cores” was developed and initiated by the order of the Ministry of the Russian Federation for Atomic Energy.

The major objectives of the Program are as follows:

  • Prevention of nuclear weapons proliferation;
  • retaining the market for FA supplies to the CIS and East European countries, etc.;
  • enabling Russia’s participation in competition projects for building research reactors in different countries of the world.

In connection with the lack of financing, the 1994 Branch Program was not implemented in full within the schedule.

Currently, there has been developed and implemented a Russian RERTR program with the completion dates of 2004-2005. It has specified the works with regard for the revision of the concept of certain tasks and their accomplishment dates and also with introduction of new problem solution paths.
