Experts in the nuclear energy industry are making significant advancements in fuel technologies that will help today’s and tomorrow’s fleets of nuclear reactors operate efficiently, reliably and safely.
One area in which experts are rapidly making progress is with enhanced accident tolerant fuel (EATF). These technologies are designed to withstand the loss of active cooling in light water reactors for longer periods of time, providing operators with more time to respond. Additionally, they can improve fuel performance during normal operations.
