Description

The European-wide research on the Lead-cooled Fast Reactor (LFR) has been steadily advancing the technology readiness level at a point where, for further targeting industrial maturity, the need of a demonstrator has risen. The Advanced Lead-cooled Fast Reactor European Demonstrator (ALFRED), along with its support research infrastructure, is the missing link of the innovation chain being conceived for demonstrating the viability of the LFR technology propelling it beyond the research frontier which has been hitherto.
Given the elevated level of maturity the ALFRED Project has currently reached, and foreseeing its inclusion in the Romanian strategy for competitiveness as a Major Project, the Fostering ALfred CONstruction (FALCON) consortium, in charge of all activities advancing the ALFRED Project, has identified the need to organize and refine the presently available material in an organic, harmonized and complete way. The results of this effort brough to the drafting of a comprehensive document presenting an exhaustive and effective overview of the entire Project: the ALFRED White Book.
A first step of knowledge of the Project – including the ALFRED demonstrator and its associated research infrastructure – is presented in the White Book, addressing its main elements under all the relevant points of view to provide an exhaustive (although qualitative) picture of the proposal and the expected benefits underneath. This includes mostly: the Project vision and mission, the scientific and technological relevance, the technical description, the supporting R&D programme and the operation strategy, the key safety and licensing elements, the socio-economic benefits, and the proposed deployment strategy and project implementation (including financial and managerial aspects).
The White Book is thus conceived as a “business card” of the ALFRED Project, meant for distribution to different stakeholders with a potential interest for involvement, including research institutes, universities, industries, safety authorities, policy makers as well as national and European Administrations and local communities.
