Abstract

The ESARDA working group on Isotopic Correlation Techniques, ICT and Reprocessing Input Analysis performed an Isotope Correlation Experiment, ICE with the aim to check the feasibility of the new technique. The input batches of the reprocessing of the KWO fuel at the WAK plant were analyzed by 4 laboratories. All information to compare ICT with the gravimetric and volumetric methods physics calculation was included. The results prove that ICT is as accurate as conventional techniques which have to rely on costly mass spectrometric isotope dilution analysis. The potential of outlier detection by ICT on the basis of the results from a single laboratory is as good as outlier detection by costly interlaboratory comparison.
