TRIGA was originally designed to be fueled with highly enriched uranium, but in the US Department of Energy launched its Reduced Enrichment for Research Test Reactors program, which promoted reactor conversion to low-enriched uranium fuel. History.

    Conversion of research reactors to low-enrichment uranium fuels by R.G. Muranaka* There are at present approximately research reactors in p.s ranoino in nnn/pr frnrn 1»«c than 1 watt to Megawatt and over. These reactors are used in every field of science and technology. The principal uses today are in fundamental research. The Material Management and Minimization Program, formerly known as the Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactor (RERTR) program, is developing low enriched uranium nuclear fuels for use in high flux reactors that currently employ fuels containing highly enriched uranium.

In response to worries over the potential use of HEU from research reactors in nuclear weapons, the U.S Department of Energy (DOE) initiated a program - the Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors (RERTR) - in to develop the technology necessary to reduce the use of HEU fuel by converting research reactors to low enriched uranium.

The Advanced Test Reactor (ATR), under the Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors (RERTR) Program and the Global Threat Reduction Initiative (GTRI), is conducting feasibility studies for the conversion of its fuel from a highly enriched uranium (HEU) composition to a low enriched uranium (LEU) composition.

These. American initiatives, such as the Global Threat Reduction Initiative (GTRI) and the Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors (RERTR) program have triggered the development of reliable low.

Summary. This report results from a congressionally mandated study (P.L. Section 1) to assess the current status of and progress toward eliminating highly enriched uranium (HEU) 2 use in fuel for civilian research and test reactors. The complete study charge is given in Box The continued presence of HEU in civilian installations such as research reactors 3 poses a threat to.

National Laboratory for the United States Department of Energy, is hosting the "RERTR International Meeting on Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors". This will be the 26th meeting of a series on the same general subject.

The previous meetings were held at ANL (), Saclay, France (), ANL (). During the last decade, a considerable international effort to develop a low enriched uranium fuel for research and test reactors with high uranium density has been underway.

Alexander Glaser Program on Science and Global Security Princeton University Abstract This paper reviews the rationale of selecting an enrichment of just less than.

Research reactors are simpler than power reactors and operate at lower temperatures. They need far less fuel, and far less fission products build up as the fuel is used. On the other hand, their fuel requires more highly enriched uranium, typically up to 20% U, although some use 93% U; while 20% enrichment is not generally considered.

More significantly, many research reactors use uranium of just under 20% enrichment, which according to the USA Today article can be used to make nuclear weapons. The U.S. has long promoted a program called Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors (RERTR), offering incentives for converting research reactors from high-enriched uranium.

Bodman announced today that the Department of Energy (DOE) has begun to convert research reactors from using highly-enriched uranium (HEU) to low-enriched uranium fuel (LEU) at the University of Florida. proceedings of the Annual International Meetings on Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors as listed in this Volume; iii) The IAEA may be contacted, through official channels, to provide coordinating assistance between reactor organizations and those laboratories which have offered technical assistance for core conversion.Because HEU can also be used in nuclear weapons, the Department of Energy's (DOE) Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors program is developing low enriched uranium (LEU), which would be very difficult to use in weapons, to replace HEU.It concluded that to guard against weapons proliferation from the HEU fuels then commonly used in research reactors, enrichment should be reduced to no more than 20% U This followed a similar initiative by the USA in when its programme for Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors (RERTR) was launched.
