[en] Thanks to research and continuous development, the nuclear fuel consumption of nuclear power plants worldwide has fallen sharply in recent decades. Compared to the 1970s, the fuel rods of today now last 2.5 times longer. The economic benefit is obvious, but more importantly, it means that less radioactive waste is generated. For the past two years, at the request of GDF SUEZ, SCK-CEN has been studying whether fuel rods in Belgian nuclear power plants can be made to serve longer, without compromising safety.
