Mining and Chemical Combine will product innovative nuclear fuel

In the Krasnoyarsk region in the company of Rosatom, Mining and Chemical Combine (MCC) will be organized industrial production of innovative Russian nuclear fuel for nuclear power reactors of various types.

Production of mixed oxide uranium-plutonium fuel (MOX- fuel) for fast neutron reactors with liquid metal coolant BN-1200 and REMIX fuel for VVER may be started at the MCC.

At the MCC in 2016 is already produced MOX fuel in the tablets form for the BN-800 reactor, which acts on the fourth power unit of Beloyarsk NPP. On the BN-800 are processed circuit technologies of the nuclear fuel cycle required for the development of nuclear energy. And the power unit with BN-800 reactor should become more powerful prototype commercial reactors BN-1200. A decision on their construction will be made on the basis of the operating experience of the BN-800 MOX fuel.
