The UK Government has recently published a strategy and roadmap for R&D to support a UK nuclear programme out to 2050. This long term policy provides fresh impetus to work towards the realisation of new reactor technologies in the UK, including Generation IV systems, opening the door to newer applications including more sustainable fuel cycles and waste management. Nearer term Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) provide a more flexible scale of electricity generation at potentially reduced capital cost. The lecture will highlight the novel features and applications of these reactor concepts. It will review briefly the current status of the Gen IV designs, considering their R&D requirements with particular reference to those pertinent to the reactor fuel and fuel cycle. It will discuss some our (AMEC’s) R&D interests, centred on the ANSWERS radiation transport codes developments and illustrate with some particular examples.
