REPORT OF THE OBJECTIVES AND PLANS FOR THE AEC'S CIVILIAN POWER GAS COOLED REACTOR PROGRAM

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Progress in the U. S. civilian power gas-cooled reactor program is discussed. Gas reactors having technical features of high conversion ratio, high temperature, high fuel burnup, and capability of construction in large sizes make them very attractive as potential producers of economic power in the very near term. The operation of Peach Bottom-HTGR and EGCR in late 1964 and 1965, respectively, will contribute to the successful exploitation of thermal gas- cooled reactors. Since the graphite fuel concept promises very low fuel cycle costs along with reactor coolant conditions that can exceed current practice, it was concluded that the concept provides ... continued below
