Idaho National Laboratory (INL) Notice of Opportunity: High-assay Low Enriched Uranium (HALEU) for Fuel Development and Microreactor Demonstration at Idaho National Laboratory
August 22, 2019
To support United States leadership in the development and demonstration of microreactor technologies, Idaho National Laboratory (INL) is providing the opportunity for access to High Assay Low Enriched Uranium (HALEU) for the development of fuel and subsequent demonstration of microreactor technology on the INL site. The goal of this opportunity is to accelerate demonstration of commercially viable microreactor technologies.

Issue Notification of Opportunity: August 22, 2019

Requests Due: 5pm EDT, October 11, 2019

Selections are anticipated to be announced within two months of the request due date.

By definition, HALEU is enriched between 5% and 20% and is required for most U.S. advanced reactors to achieve smaller designs that get more power per unit of volume. HALEU will also allow developers to optimize their systems for longer life cores, increased efficiencies and better fuel utilization.
