The first experiment in which the plasma in a tokamak was fuelled with tritium was carried out at JET in November 1991 using 0.1 g of tritium. The design, construction and safety justification of the tritium handling plant for the final D-T phase at JET using 90 g of tritium has been essentially completed. Valuable experience in tritium handling, clean-up and waste disposal has been gained which is directly relevant to the use of tritium in future JET operation and to controlled fusion research in general.
