Description

Development and justification of innovative nuclear power technologies, spent nuclear fuel management and closed nuclear fuel cycle are the main issues that nuclear power industry faces nowadays.

Solving those tasks will be possible only with the help of modern research infrastructure permitting to conduct a full-scale experiments and to model various operating conditions. Russia is committed to create such an infrastructure in the form of multipurpose fast sodium research reactor MBIR and Poly Functional Radiochemical Complex (R&D Complex), which will help to resolve the scientific challenges faced in the 21 century.

Russia’s decision to combine the Poly Functional Radiochemical Complex (R&D Complex) and MBIR reactor, which are both under construction at the RIAR site in Dimitrovgrad significantly raises the capabilities of advanced research in nuclear fuel, nuclear fuel cycle and SNF treatment technologies testing.

Establishment of an International Research Center based on reactor MBIR and R&D Complex in the form of a consortium with international participation is an example of international cooperation in nuclear area.

This paper provides information on MBIR and R&D Complex.

The emphasis of the paper is on the structure, terms and conditions of the consortium as well as on the current status of the project.
