This category is about fissionable nuclear fuel design and technology, fuel enrichment, fuel fabrication, fuel assemblies (including cladding) and fuel cycle.
Nuclear fuel is used in nuclear reactor as the primary heat source for producing electrical and/or thermal energy.
Several types of fuel can be used in nuclear reactors; amongst others MOX (mixed uranium-plutonium oxide), natural uranium, enriched uranium, thorium, high temperature fuel (HTF), fuel rods and fuel pebbles.
