RERTR-2009 International Meeting


The U.S. Department of Energy / National Nuclear Security Administration’s Office of Global Threat Reduction in cooperation with the China Atomic Energy Authority and International Atomic Energy Agency hosted the “RERTR 2009 International Meeting on Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors.” The meeting was organized by Argonne National Laboratory, China Institute of Atomic Energy and Idaho National Laboratory and was held in Beijing, China from November 1-5, 2009. This was the 31st annual meeting in a series on the same general subject regarding the conversion of reactors within the Global Threat Reduction Initiative (GTRI).

The international meeting was attended by 183 technical and policy experts from twenty-nine countries and the IAEA. Over 102 technical papers were presented in fourteen oral and two poster sessions during the four-day-long meeting. Parallel sessions were scheduled to accommodate the large number of expected presentations. Throughout the week more than twenty side meetings were held to discuss on-going and future conversion, fuel development and Mo-99 activities. The China Institute of Atomic Energy (CIAE) hosted a well attended technical tour of three facilities: CIAE’s fast-neutron breeder reactor, HI-13 tandem accelerator and radioisotope production facility.

The abstracts and full papers are being collected and will be soon available on this web site. Subscribe to our RSS feed to stay informed on future updates.

The RERTR-2009 Organizing Committee would like to thank hosts, sponsors, and participants for making RERTR-2009 such a successful event. Thank you!
