RERTR-2010 International Meeting


The U.S. Department of Energy / National Nuclear Security Administration’s Office of Global Threat Reduction in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency hosted the “RERTR 2010 International Meeting on Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors.” The meeting was organized by Argonne National Laboratory, Instituto Tecnológico e Nuclear (ITN) and Idaho National Laboratory and was held in Lisbon, Portugal from October 10-14, 2010. This was the 32nd annual meeting in a series on the same general subject regarding conversion of reactors within the Global Threat Reduction Initiative.

Information was exchanged on the progress of national and international programs to develop low-enriched uranium (LEU) fuels and targets for research and test reactors and to convert research reactors and radioisotope production processes to the use of such fuels and targets. The meeting technical subjects included development of new LEU fuels, development and testing of LEU targets and processes for the production of Mo-99, design and safety analyses for reactor conversions, transportation and storage of spent fuels, and HEU minimization and Global Threat Reduction.

The RERTR-2010 Organizing Committee would like to thank hosts, sponsors, and participants for making RERTR-2010 such a successful event. Thank you!
