Innovative accident-tolerant fuel cladding materials the h2020 il trovatore perspective

Abstract

The Fukushima Daiichi event has demonstrated the need for improved nuclear energy safety, prompting amongst other efforts the development of accident-tolerant fuels (ATFs), which are expected to overcome the inherent technical shortcomings of the standard zircaloy/UO2 fuels. The main objective of the IL TROVATORE project is to optimize and validate, in an industrially-relevant environment, some of the most promising ATF cladding materials for use in light water reactors. The ATF cladding material concepts proposed in IL TROVATORE are expected to demonstrate significant improvement in performance when compared to the current fuel cladding materials, thus helping to take a critical step towards an improved energy safety worldwide. To achieve its ambitious objectives, IL TROVATORE relies on academic excellence and industrial support, while also involving standardization bodies and nuclear safety regulatory authorities to accelerate the transfer of key innovation to market. Since the IL TROVATORE project is put forth to address a pressing global challenge, it is an international collaboration between Europe, the USA and Japan.
