Status of Liquid Metal Cooled Fast Reactor Technology


File Size: 18.93 Mb

Description
In 1985 the International Atomic Energy Agency published a report entitled "Status of Liquid Metal Cooled Fast Breeder Reactors" (Technical Reports Series No. 246). It was a general review of the status of fast reactor development at that time, covering some aspects of design and operation and reviewing experience from the earliest days. It summarized the programmes and plans in all countries which were pursuing the development of fast reactors.

During the period 1985-1998, there have been substantial advances in fast reactor technology development. Chief among these has been the demonstration of reliable operation by several prototypes and experimental reactors, the reliable operation of fuel at a high bumup (BN- 600, BN-350, Phenix, PFR BOR-60, FFTF). Some additional countries, such as China, India and the Republic of Korea have launched new fast reactor programmes. At the IAEA meetings on liquid metal cooled fast reactor (LMFR) technology, it became evident that there have been significant technological advances as well as changes in the economic and regulatory environment since 1985. Therefore, the International Working Group on Fast Reactors (IWGFR) has recommended the preparation of a new status report on fast reactor technology.
