      The Dhruva reactor is India’s largest research reactor and primary source of weapons-grade plutonium. Originally named the R-5, this Pressurized Heavy Water Reactor (PHWR) first went critical on 8 August after 10 years of construction. Designed as a larger version of the CIRUS reactor, Dhruva was an indigenous project built to provide an independent source. Spent nuclear fuel, occasionally called used nuclear fuel, is nuclear fuel that has been irradiated in a nuclear reactor (usually at a nuclear power plant).It is no longer useful in sustaining a nuclear reaction in an ordinary thermal reactor and depending on its point along the nuclear fuel cycle, it may have considerably different isotopic constituents.

    1 “Spent Nuclear Fuel” (SNF) is sometimes referred to as “used” nuclear fuel. This difference in terminology often This difference in terminology often reflects a significant policy debate about whether SNF is a waste destined for disposal, or a resource.   What We Regulate. There are two acceptable storage methods for spent fuel after it is removed from the reactor core: Spent Fuel Pools - Currently, most spent nuclear fuel is safely stored in specially designed pools at individual reactor sites around the country.; Dry Cask Storage – Licensees may also store spent nuclear fuel in dry cask storage systems at independent spent fuel storage.

    Aluminum spent nuclear fuels are susceptible to corrosion attack, or mechanical damage from improper handling, while in pool reactor storage. Storage practices have been modified to reduce the potential for damage, based on recommendations presented at 2nd WS on Spent Fuel Characterization, promoted by IAEA, in [1].Author: José Eduardo Rosa, Luís Antonio, Albiac Terremoto, Celso Antonio Teodoro, Georgi Lucki, Margaret de. aluminum-base, spent, research and test reactor fuel assemblies. There are o spent fuel assemblies now stored in different countries around the world, and by many will be returned to SRS for treatment and interim storage, in preparation for disposal in a geologic : H.B.

Spent reactor fuels. The fuel cycle of research reactors is similar to that of most power reactors, including all steps from fuel fabrication to spent fuel management.

The IAEA assists Member States in all phases of this cycle and, upon request, helps them convert their research reactors from high- to. Laraia, in Nuclear Decommissioning, Other UK sites. Several research reactors in the UK have been dismantled and their sites released for non-nuclear use.
