Description

The summary of this report are: (1) Despite many of the technology gaps and data uncertainties, there is no lack of innovation and revolutionary ideas in Non-Classical reactor concepts. (2) Several concepts such as gas/vapor core reactors meet or exceed Gen IV goals for sustainability, safety, and economy, and have potential for making significant inroads toward achieving the optimum utilization of nuclear energy. (3) Gas/vapor core reactors set the upper performance potential in sustainability and safety with no insurmountable technology challenge. (4) Evaluation of modular deployable concepts are underway. (5) Direct energy conversion and non-convective cooled nuclear reactor systems are ... continued below
