TRIUMF has launched a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Canadian-German nuclear technology company Dual Fluid to advance the development of a Small Modular Reactor (SMR) based on Dual Fluid technology.
The goal of the new reactor concept is to use processed nuclear waste as fuel and to exponentially increase the performance of today’s nuclear power production technologies. This research will leverage TRIUMF’s Proton and Neutron Irradiation Facilities, PIF & NIF, and metallurgical testing capabilities. Collaboration is also planned on detector development and reactor core imaging.
