Nuclear fuel cycle safety
The objective of this Training Module is to provide a transfer of knowledge in the fields of the front and back end of the nuclear fuel cycle.
The course is focused on uranium mining, enrichment, fuel element fabrication, transport, reprocessing, waste treatment and interim storage. The technological knowledge necessary for safety assessments will be imparted. In this respect, before the training module, a short document on “general features of Nuclear Fuel Cycle” will be given to the participants. It will constitute a reminder on the main hazards in fuel cycle facilities of nuclear origin and of non-nuclear origin, as well as the main safety issues and safety principles of the nuclear fuel cycle.
