 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'In line with the Sustainable Nuclear Energy Technology Platform (SNETP) Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) and Deployment Strategy (DS), the ARCHER project will extend the state-of-the-art European (V)HTR technology basis with generic technical effort in support of nuclear cogeneration demonstration.

The partner consortium consists of representatives of conventional and nuclear industry, utilities, Technical Support Organisations, R&D institutes and universities. They jointly propose generic efforts composed of: -System integration assessment of a nuclear cogeneration unit coupled to industrial processes -Critical safety aspects of the primary and coupled system: oPressure boundary integrity oDust oIn-core hot spots oWater and air ingress accident evaluation -Essential HTR fuel and fuel back end R&D oPIE for fuel performance code improvement and validation oBack end research focused on radiolysis -Coupling component development: oIntermediate heat exchanger development oSteam generator assessment -High temperature material R&D: oCompletion of graphite design curves oMaking use of the experience of state of the art metal in conventional industry -Nuclear cogeneration knowledge management, training and communication

The activities proposed are imbedded in the international framework via GIF; direct collaboration within the project with international partners from the US, China, Japan, and the republic of Korea; and cooperation with IAEA and ISTC.

The proposal is a technical building block supporting nuclear cogeneration as fossil fuel alternative for industry and as such supports a high potential contribution to European energy strategy as defined in the SET-Plan. The results of the proposal will be reported to SNETP, to support the strategic pillar of ‘other uses of nuclear energy’, and the establishment of a Nuclear Cogeneration Industrial Initiative, which shall include effective (international) nuclear cogeneration demonstration.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Cogeneration of heat and power (CHP) is a very efficient way to produce electricity and steam for industry. Scientists and engineers are developing a similar concept for next-generation nuclear reactors to produce greener energy.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

CHP systems, primarily based on the combustion of fossil fuels, are very efficient suppliers of electricity and heat to homes, offices, buildings and industrial processes. High-temperature, gas-cooled nuclear reactors (HTRs) can generate steam conditions comparable to conventional CHP plants. They are well suited to CHP to deliver large-scale power to industries, but without using fossil fuels.

Scientists initiated the EU-funded project 'Advanced high-temperature reactors for cogeneration of heat and electricity R &D' (ARCHER) to provide generic technical support leading to a nuclear CHP concept. It will extend European HTR and very HTR (VHTR) technologies by incorporating novel advancements. This initiative involves collaboration between a large European consortium and international partners from Asia and the United States.

Researchers are assessing the coupling of nuclear cogeneration to industrial processes (system integration). A suitable cogeneration coupling case study was selected by exploiting an existing petrochemical industrial site.. Safety tests have been carried out with great success and system modelling efforts are underway.

Research and development (R&D) efforts are also targeting HTR fuels and other high-temperature materials and components. Post-irradiation examination (PIE) of materials using non-destructive testing has shown success and even preliminary results are likely to be publishable. Scientists are ready to conduct a mock-up to assess performance of an intermediate heat exchanger (IHX) prototype required for the development of the coupling system. Researchers are currently evaluating high-temperature alloys and instrumentation as well.

There are currently few alternatives to fossil fuel combustion for industrial power production in the EU. Insecurity of supply and price volatility combined with environmental impact support the development of nuclear CHP. ARCHER is providing the technical support to demonstrate the concept's validity and viability.
