Work Packages

The research programme is divided into 5 interconnected work packages:

WP1 Fuel-Separations Interfaceled by Colin Boxall, Lancaster University

This work package aims to answer a number of research questions concerning the balance between recyclability and accident tolerance.

WP2 Effects of Contaminants on Separationsled by Laurence Harwood, University of Reading

The aim of this work package is to investigate the effects of contaminants on speciation specifically targeting the GANEX AND I-SANEX process.

WP3 Investigation and Optimisation of Accident Tolerant Fuelsled by Karl Whittle, University of Liverpool

This work package is focussed on the optimisation and manufacture of accident tolerant fuel materials.

WP4 Fuel behaviour: non-stoichiometry and the fuel-water interfaceled by Ian Farnan, University of Cambridge

The aim of this work package is to build an understanding of how accident tolerant fuels will react in aqueous environments.

WP5 Integrated management of accident tolerant fuelsled by Panagiota Angeli, University College, London

The aim of this work package is to develop integrated separation technologies which can be used in the recycling and reprocessing of metals and the production of nuclear fuels.
