Reduced enrichment for research and test reactors: proceedings of an international meeting, Petten, the Netherlands, October , [Peter von der Hardt; A Travelli; Commission of the European Communities.;]. In response to worries over the potential use of HEU from research reactors in nuclear weapons, the U.S Department of Energy (DOE) initiated a program - the Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors (RERTR) - in to develop the technology necessary to reduce the use of HEU fuel by converting research reactors to low enriched uranium.

The Advanced Test Reactor (ATR), under the Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors (RERTR) Program and the Global Threat Reduction Initiative (GTRI), is conducting feasibility studies for the conversion of its fuel from a highly enriched uranium (HEU) composition to a low enriched uranium (LEU) composition. These. American initiatives, such as the Global Threat Reduction Initiative (GTRI) and the Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors (RERTR) program have triggered the development of reliable low. Summary. This report results from a congressionally mandated study (P.L. , Section 1) to assess the current status of and progress toward eliminating highly enriched uranium (HEU) 2 use in fuel for civilian research and test reactors. The complete study charge is given in Box The continued presence of HEU in civilian installations such as research reactors 3 poses a threat to. National Laboratory for the United States Department of Energy, is hosting the "RERTR International Meeting on Reduced Enrichment for Research and Test Reactors". This will be the 26th meeting of a series on the same general subject. The previous meetings were held at ANL (), Saclay, France (), ANL ().
