Technical Paper / Fusion Energy - Tritium, Safety, and Environment

With the US re-entering the ITER project, the US safety program has been tasked to address safety issues left unresolved during the US absence over the past five years. As a consequence our current and future US ITER safety studies will focus on validating US safety analysis tools that underpin the ITER safety analysis, refining in-vessel dust and tritium inventory safety limits and developing corresponding dust and tritium removal strategies that will demonstrate compliance with ITER limits without hampering operational flexibility of the machine.
