The facility dedicated to full tritium recovery from carbon flakes and dust generated in the JET fusion reactor during operation with tritium plasma has been designed and is being constructed at the JET Active Gas Handling plant. This facility will also be used for the study of a correlation between the tritium inventory in carbon flakes/dust and tiles exposed to tritium plasma and the rate of tritium out-gassing from them.
