Technical Paper / Tritium in Fission /

An overview of the various Canadian tritium research and operational activities supporting the development, refurbishment and operation of CANDU® a nuclear power reactors is presented. These activities encompass tritium health and safety, tritium in the environment, tritium interaction with materials, and tritium processing, and relate to both supporting R&D advances as well as operational best practices. The collective results of these activities contribute to our goals of improving worker and public safety, and operational efficiency.
