PuMMA aims to define different options for
Plutonium (Pu) management in Generation IV
nuclear reactors, by evaluating the impact of high
Pu content on the whole fuel cycle, reactor safety
and performance.
making nuclear energy more sustainable

Developing sustainable sources for clean energy production has become a top priority as climate change becomes an increasing threat. In order to contribute to this energy transition, PuMMA will conduct research that significantly improves fuel cycle knowledge in Generation IV nuclear reactors, thus enabling the recycling of used fuels and boosting fuel performance. This will ultimately lead to increased sustainability and performance of nuclear energy.
