Partitioning And Transmuter Research Initiative in a Collaborative Innovation Action - PATRICIA

Nuclear power has low CO2 emissions and is a sustainable energy source. However, its safety and waste issues cannot be disregarded. The solution for achieving reduced nuclear waste is to recycle spent fuel. To address this challenge, the EU-funded PATRICIA project aims to follow the EU’s plan for sustainable nuclear energy that describes the technical needs of fuel recycling. To this end, the project will investigate advanced partitioning to efficiently separate the radioactive chemical americium from spent fuel, and it will study the development of transmutation systems. It will also explore the behaviour of americium-bearing fuel under irradiation and conduct safety-related research. The project’s results will pave the way for better radioactive waste management and use of fuel resource
