Re-Assessment of Nitride Fuel Potential in the Current Context of the Nuclear Industry Conference Paper uri icon


  • In recent years, there has been a renewal of interest in nitride fuels throughout the international community. The new challenges met by the nuclear industry, which include greater safety margin and the question of the waste management, have resulted in active research programs in next generation fast spectrum reactors and waste transmutation systems. Through these programs, nitride fuel has emerged as one of the most promising advanced fuels, thanks to their numerous favorable properties.
