The first field trials of a Russia-developed innovative REMIX (Regenerated Mixture) fuel has started at the country's Balakovo Nuclear Power Plant (BNPP), the facility's press service said Friday.

REMIX fuel is produced from a non-separated mix of recycled uranium and plutonium by reprocessing used fuel with added enriched uranium which reduces fuel consumption.

It is planned that the REMIX fuel will remain at the BNPP for at least three years. During this time, its condition will be monitored.

After being discharged from the reactor, irradiated fuel assemblies will be delivered to a specialized organization to perform a post-irradiation examination.

The REMIX project has been made possible by more than a dozen Russian nuclear industry institutions, including the V. G. Khlopin Radium Institute, the Kurchatov Institute, the Rosenergoatom and TVEL, among others.

Berlin (AFP) July 5, 2016
Germany may not have a final storage facility for its nuclear waste up and running until the next century, an expert report released on Tuesday suggested. For the past two years, a commission of scientists, industry leaders and civil society representatives have debated the question of where Germany should store waste from its soon-to-be-retired nuclear reactors. Initially, the commissi ... read more
