A host of novel fuel and material concepts are being investigated as part of the GenIV
reactor development initiative. While many of these candidates are rooted in historical
programs from previous reactor development campaigns, most of these concepts were
never fully evalauted for long-term performance in non-LWR facilities. The performance
data that is needed for candidate material downselection, feasibility studies, and eventual
qualification is, currently, very costly in terms of monetary cost and human capital. The
use of an ‘all of the above’ strategy for performance assessment is needed to reduce the
cost of ushering materials through the qualification process. In this presentation, we will
discuss the efforts that are currently underway, and those planned for the near future, to
advance many of these candidates from concept to deployment. Visit: https://www.gen-4.org/gif/jcms/c_116771/daniel-labrier-flyer-04012020 for more informaton.

The objective of the GIF VHTR Hydrogen Production Project Management Board is to provide a collaborative environment among the signatories for the development, optimization and demonstration of economical large-scale hydrogen production processes that do not emit green-house gases through the use of nuclear energy. The main processes considered by the signatories include Sulphur-Iodine (S-I), High Temperature Steam Electrolysis (HTSE), Copper-Chlorine (Cu-Cl) and Hybrid Sulphur (HyS). The signatories include Canada, EU, France, Japan, Korea and the USA. China has been an observer, waiting to join the group formally, but contributing strongly to the developments. The S-I process has been demonstrated for short term operation by China, Korea and Japan. EU, France and the USA have been very active in HTSE. Canada has been focusing on the Cu-Cl Cycle with plans for demonstration of an integrated lab-scale system in 2021. This webinar will provide an overview of these activities and their relevance to mitigating global warming.

Micro-reactors are very small nuclear reactors capable of operating independently from the electric grid to supply highly resilient power, and are well suited to serve the power needs for remote communities that currently do not have access to reliable, resilient and affordable energy. A typical commercial microreactor is envisioned to be a mobile nuclear power plant in a 2-20 MWe range that is fully factory built, fueled and assembled. It is transportable to the remote site via ground, sea or air with black start, renewable integration and island mode operation capability. They are designed to be self-regulating and walk-away safe with minimal operator intervention. NEI estimates that Microreactors could deliver electricity at rates between $0.09/kWh and $0.33/kWh. This presentation will describe ‘genericized’ microreactor designs being pursued by various vendors, technology gaps and the role of DOE’s Microreactor R&D.

Microreactors are a specific subset of small modular reactors characterized by a generation capacity of approximately 1 to 20 megawatts of electricity. Hear the perspectives from experts on how these reactors offer a combination of reliability and operational flexibility that no other small electrical generating system can match, including mutually enabling abilities when linked with other carbon-free energy sources. These reactors utilize a small land footprint, can be transported using a semi-truck, and potentially operate for years without refueling. These microreactors will empower many innovative uses in our future clean energy economy.

Panelists will highlight how these paradigm-shifting technologies will enable remote villages, island communities, military operations, off-grid consumers, and high-temperature process heat customers to benefit from carbon-free nuclear energy. The panelists will discuss the state of the technology development, benefits, economics, potential customers, and opportunities to incorporate cutting-edge innovations, such as additive manufacturing and remote/autonomous operations.

A major design goal for Generation IV nuclear energy systems is to reduce or eliminate the
likelihood and/or extent of reactor core damage incurred during an off-normal operating event,
thereby eliminating the need for offsite emergency response. One approach for achieving this
objective is to develop inherently safe reactor designs that can passively dissipate decay heat to
the environment without relying on operator action during an event of this type. Historically,
this approach has been taken for both sodium- and gas-cooled Generation IV reactor types by
providing Reactor Cavity Cooling Systems (RCCS) that are designed to passively dissipate decay
heat to the environment by natural convection while maintain fuel temperature below the
threshold for onset of core damage.
This presentation will begin by providing a high level overview of RCCS systems that have been
developed for advanced reactor designs over the years. This will be followed by a summary of
large scale integral effect tests that are currently underway at Argonne to provide licensingquality
data for two of these systems; i.e., air- and water-cooled RCCS concepts.
