NRC moves ahead on HALEU enrichment, rulemaking, and guidance
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission is requesting comments on the regulatory basis for a proposed rule for light water reactor fuel designs featuring high-assay low-enriched uranium (HALEU), including accident tolerant fuel (ATF) designs, and on draft guidance for the environmental evaluation of ATFs containing uranium enriched up to 8 percent U-235. Some of the HALEU feedstock for those LWR fuels and for advanced reactor fuels could be produced within the first Category II fuel facility licensed by the NRC—Centrus Energy’s American Centrifuge Plant in Piketon, Ohio. On September 21, the NRC approved the start of enrichment operations in the plant’s modest 16-machine HALEU demonstration cascade.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has limited funds at its disposal to help meet the travel costs of attendance at the TopFuel 2022 Light Water Reactor Fuel Performance Conference by selected participants from IAEA Member States. Preference will be given to participants who are expected to make an important contribution to the Conference. Generally, not more than one grant will be awarded to any one country.
If organizations wish to apply for a grant on behalf of one of their participants, they should address specific requests to the Conference to this effect. Organizations should ensure that applications for grants are:
• Submitted by September 16;
• Accompanied by duly completed and signed Grant Application Form giving detailed information on the scientific qualifications of the candidate and signed by the head of the applicant’s organization.
Applications which do not comply with the above conditions cannot be considered.
The grants awarded will be in the form of a lump sum, usually covering part of the travel cost of attendance.
