Multifunctional Research Fast Reactor (MBIR) is being built in the Russian Federation for justification of the new projects of nuclear power based on fast reactors operated in the closed nuclear fuel cycle. MBIR will make it possible to carry out a wide scope of reactor research including studies into new types of fuel and structural materials in combination with different coolants. It can also provide a solution to the problems of safety, reliability and economic efficiency of designed NPPs with fast reactors.
The reactor main design parameters and experimental capabilities are described in the report.
Special attention is paid to the Advanced Scientific Research Program for the 2028-2040 period, which includes potential studies on independent loop facilities for the benefit of G4 reactors.
