Development of fuels for the transmutation in the frame of the EFTTRA European collaboration
The aim of the Experimental Feasibility of Targets for Transmutation (EFTTRA) collaboration is to organise joint experiments for the study of materials for transmutation. The work is focused on the transmutation of technetium-99 (metal), of iodine-129 (compound), and of americium (in an inert matrix). Irradiation experiments, taking place in parallel in the Phenix fast reactor in France, and in the thermal high flux reactor (HFR) in the Netherlands, have started. These experiments, together with the related post-irradiation examinations, constitute the first phase of the EFTTRA collaboration. The final goal of the participants in the development of advanced types of fuels and targets.
