How it works
TEPLATOR uses already irradiated nuclear fuel (not burnt up to its regulatory and design limits) from commercial light water power reactors.
More optimal fuel lattice pitch
Lower fuel temperature
Lower coolant pressure for producing commercial heat
Cost of less than 4 EUR/GJ
Investment cost for building the TEPLATOR district heating station is below 30M EUR (prices of 2019).
The TEPLATOR solutions is especially suitable for countries that have thousands FAs stored either in interim storage casks or spent (irradiated) fuel pools. These FAs are now financial liability which, once used for heat production, can turn into a sizeable financial asset.
