An overview of HTGR fuel recycle is presented, with emphasis placed on reprocessing and fuel kernel refabrication. Overall recycle operations include (1) shipment and storage, (2) reprocessing, (3) refabrication, (4) waste handling, and (5) accountability and safeguards.

The Thorium Utilization National Program Plan for HTGR Fuel Recycle Development includes the demonstration, on a production scale, of reprocessing and refabrication processes in an HTGR Recycle Demonstration Facility (HRDF).

A summary plan is introduced for completing conceptual definition of an HTGR Recycle Reference Facility (HRRF). The plan describes a generic project management concept, often referred to as. Summary report An availability analysis of reprocessing systems in a high-temperature gas-cooled reactor (HTGR) fuel recycle facility was completed.

This report summarizes work done to date to define and determine reprocessing system availability for a previously planned HTGR recycle reference facility (HRRF). NATIONAL HTGR FUEL RECYCLE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM PLAN.

@article{osti_, title = {Irradiation performance of HTGR recycle fissile fuel}, author = {Homan, F. and Long, Jr., E. L.}, abstractNote = {The irradiation performance of candidate HTGR recycle fissile fuel under accelerated testing conditions is reviewed. Failure modes for coated-particle fuels are described, and the performance of candidate recycle fissile fuels is discussed in.

However, only about 40% of the elements in the recycle mode of operation contain recycle fuel, the remaining 60% contain fresh make-up fuel.

The net difference in fabrication cost is only mill/kWh between the two modes of operation. Shipping and reprocessing R.C. Dahlberg et al., HTGR fuel and fuel cycle 71 Table 6.

For 8% enriched UO 2 fuel, mixing BPPs containing B 4 C with radius of 75 μm through the fuel zone of a standard HTGR fuel pebble with outer radius of 3 cm, the reactivity swing is 2% at a k ∞ of This means the burnable poison occupies a vol less than that of the fuel pebble (FVR = 60,).

Highlights Fuel cycle analyses of LWR–ARR, LWR–HTGR–ARR, and HTGR recycling scenarios. A 30% reduction in the natural uranium consumption over the once-through cycle. A great reduction of TRU waste generation over the once-through cycle.

The electricity generation costs of 39, 35 and 26 USD/MW h(e) for three scenarios. Economic benefits of an HTGR owing to its high fuel burnup. The actual spent fuel mass represents only 4% of the fuel element mass unloaded from the HTGR (compared with nearly 70% for a spent LWR fuel element).

For an equivalent actinide loss in the waste stream, this difference requires substantially better actinide recovery performance than can be obtained with current head-end processes.

Japan’s HTGR program is focused on the Atomic Energy Agency’s high-temperature test reactor (HTTR) located in Oarai, Ibaraki prefecture. New types of nuclear reactors are developed in stages, and the HTTR, with a thermal output of 30, kilowatts, is the first stage in this process.

The New HTGR is shown to have about 4 MW/m 3 average power density as reported in the paper of Ohashi et al.

Up tofuel pebbles recycle through the reactor continuously (about six times each) until they are expended giving an average enrichment in the fuel load of percent and average burn-up of 80 GWday/t U (eventual target burn-ups are GWd/t).

Recyclable fuel wastes are fuels, such as gasoline, diesel, or jet fuel, that are contaminated with water, dirt, or other materials, or that have chemically degraded during storage and cannot be used as a fuel until reclaimed. Amazon Second Chance. Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life.

Inthe Department of Energy (DOE) focused on improving TRISO fuel using uranium oxycarbide fuel kernels and enhancing its irradiation performance and manufacturing methods in order to further develop advanced high-temperature gas. The problem set associated with the heat transfer from the fuel stick to the coolant gas in the HTGR is illustrated in Fig.

1 where the radial temperature drop is traced from the fuel stick centerline to the coolant gas. In detail, in the HTGR the coated particle fuel is embedded in a carbon matrix in the form of cylindrical fuel sticks.

Tristructural isotropic (TRISO) coated particle fuel is a robust, microencapsulated fuel form developed originally for use in high-temperature gas-cooled reactors (HTGRs). The particles consist of a spherical fissile kernel surrounded by several layers of pyrocarbon and a silicon carbide (SiC) layer.

In this case the old idea is the “high temperature gas reactor” or HTGR, that then was proposed in a modular version, known as the MHTGR.
