MYRRHA Research and Transmutation Endeavour

The goal of MYRTE is to perform research to support the development of the MYRRHA (Multi-Purpose Hybrid Research Reactor for High-Tech Applications) research facility, which aims to demonstrate the feasibility of high-level nuclear waste transmutation at industrial scale. With MYRRHA as a large multipurpose irradiation facility, the demonstration of transmutation will be combined with the production of radio-isotopes and the ability to perform material testing for nuclear fission and fusion applications.  Numerical studies and experimental facilities are defined to achieve our goal.
