Abstract

The EFTTRA (Experimental Feasibility of Targets for Transmutation) group has been formed, with participants from CEA (France), ECN (the Netherlands), EDF (France), KfK (Germany) and ITU (European Commission), to organise joint experiments for the study of materials for the transmutation of long-lived nuclides. It was decided to focus the work on the transmutation of 99Tc (metal), 129I (compound), and Am (in an inert matrix). Irradiations will take place in parallel in the Phenix fast reactor in France, and in the high flux thermal reactor HFR in the Netherlands. These experiments, together with the related post-irradiation examinations, constitute the first phase of the EFTTRA collaboration. In subsequent phases, EFTTRA will contribute to the development of fuels and targets.
