The Next Evolution of Nuclear Fuel

AREVA is introducing the next evolution of nuclear fuel as part of its partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s EATF program. We're leading the industry to provide nuclear operators a near-term solution based on years of experience and building on our proven products. AREVA’s near-term solution places EATF features – chromia-doped pellets and chromium-coated cladding – in its existing fuel designs, offering operators enhanced efficiency and reliability.

AREVA’s EATF program is built on the collective knowledge, skills and expertise of leaders from across the nuclear sector – utilities, national labs, universities and industry organizations. And our progress is the result of more than a decade of research and testing led by teams in the U.S. and around the world. The expertise and experience of our people are the driving forces behind our EATF program.
