First Joint IAEA-ITER Technical Meeting on Safety and Radiation Protection for Fusion, Online, 17-19 November 2020

The commercial exploitation of nuclear fusion energy for electricity production is now nearer than previously imagined. Several organisations are developing fusion reactors with the aim of demonstrating electricity production in the 2030s. These timescales suggest that conceptual designs are being worked on now and the detailed design, construct…

30th Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT), Giardini Naxos, Messina, Sicily, 16-21 September 2018

Pre-conceptual design studies for a European Demonstration Fusion Power Plant (DEMO) have been in progress since 2014.  At this stage, while a range of design options are being considered, it is essential that assessments are carried out of the safety and environmental impact of these options.  This is not only to ensure that the DEMO plant is op…

27th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference, Ahmedabad, India, 22-27 October 2018

Waste-production predictions for the future demonstration fusion power plant (DEMO) are necessary to produce an accurate picture of the likely environmental and economic costs of radioactive waste disposal at end-of-life (EOL). Even during the conceptual stage of DEMO design it is important to perform waste assessment so as to avoid potential surpr…
