The research programme is divided into 5 interconnected work packages:
WP1 Fuel-Separations Interface – led 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 Separations – led 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 Fuels – led 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 interface – led 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 fuels – led 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.
