Fuel cycle technology

Fuel cycle technology and innovation includes development at all stages of the nuclear fuel cycle, from the latest uranium enrichment technologies to the design and implementation of small modular reactors (SMR).

NEA work on this topic

The NEA aims to provide information and analyses to decision makers regarding the future of nuclear energy – including on economic and resource analyses, advances in nuclear power and fuel cycle technologies. 

The NEA Committee for Technical and Economic Studies on Nuclear Energy Development and the Fuel Cycle (NDC) works in this area to advise decision makers and policy makers on the state of the art and latest trends in nuclear technology.
