Provides a comprehensive but holistic overview of High-Temperature Reactors (HTRs), Gas-Cooled Fast Reactors (GFRs) and the associate Innovative Fuel Cycles and Nuclear Hydrogen Production
Considers the non-electric applications and the closure of nuclear fuel cycles and their potential to develop nuclear fuel technology and applications
Highlights the implementation of symbiotic LWR-HTR-GFR fuel cycles and their potential to optimize the exploitation of uranium and thorium resources
Providing a comprehensive but holistic overview of innovative gas cooled reactors, this book examines two leading-edge nuclear reactor designs, and how they are opening new frontiers to nuclear technology owing to their non-electrical applications. It explores High-Temperature Reactors (HTRs), which in light of recent developments now have simpler plant layouts and improved efficiency. It also presents an overview of Gas-Cooled Fast Reactors (GFRs) and discusses the alternative they present to existing reactors due to a sustainable fuel cycle. Investigating other important issues relevant to innovative gas cooled reactors, it explores how innovative fuel cycles can benefit sustainability, and presents state of the art materials and technology for partitioning and transmutation. It subsequently discusses nuclear hydrogen production and nuclear hydrogen production plants.
This book is intended for researchers, postgraduates and professionals interested in nuclear engineering. It also provides a useful resource to professionals and researchers interested in hydrogen production and energy production systems.
