INNOVATIVE SCO2-BASED HEAT REMOVAL TECHNOLOGY FOR AN INCREASED LEVEL OF SAFETY OF NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

Project description

Heat removing in nuclear power plants

Removing heat from nuclear reactors is an essential step in energy generation. The effectiveness of that process depends on many factors including the cooling agents used. The main aim of the EU-funded project sCO2-4-NPP is to introduce and commercialise innovative technology for heat removal in nuclear power plants. Technology used in the sCO2-4-NPP initiative will provide a backup cooling system, attached to the principal steam-based cooling system, which considerably delays or eliminates the need for human intervention in the case of accidents. Its compact size and the modularity of the system, allows the innovative technology to be fitted into existing nuclear power plants. It can also be included in nuclear power plants under development.
