REDUCTION OF RADIOLOGICAL CONSEQUENCES OF DESIGN BASIS AND DESIGN EXTENDION ACCIDENTS

Project description

Updating European nuclear safety methodologies in light of new risks

Nuclear power plants can produce cost-effective and emission-free electricity around the clock. About a quarter of all electricity and half of the low-carbon electricity in the EU is currently generated with nuclear energy, and increasing its contribution is good for the planet and for its citizens. Nuclear safety is an EU priority, and the EU-funded R2CA project is supporting this with an eye on both operating and future nuclear power plants. The focus is on developing methods to reassess safety margins considering new risks that may have arisen from the original designs or extensions to them. Based on evaluations, the team is also identifying new accident management measures and technologies to reduce the radiological consequences of emergency situations.
