Abstract

This report analyses the neutron-induced radioactivity in D-T fusion with regard to safety and environmental issues. The strategy for fusion development in the European Commission aims at attaining the following: (i) the worst possible fusion accident will not lead to evacuation of the population outside the plant perimeter; (ii) the greatest possible use of low activation materials (LAMs) to facilitate maintenance and reduce the decommissioning and waste management problems. Activation levels of typical constitutive materials are evaluated for each component and compared with the relevant criteria. Materials composition data for the development of novel LAMs are defined and low activation reference tables are presented.
