Abstract: Nuclear energy has the potential to provide Europe with a secure and sustainable electricity supply at a competitive price and to make a significant contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The renewal of interest in fast neutron spectra to meet more ambitious sustainable development criteria (resource management and waste minimisation), opens a favourable framework for R&D activities. The Institute for Transuranium Elements has a large experience in the fabrication and characterization of fast reactor fuels, either in oxide, nitride or carbide form. In addition, many of these fuels have been irradiated in experimental fast reactors such as the Phénix reactor in Marcoule (France). This paper presents an overview of the past and current activities on fabrication, characterization, irradiation and post-irradiation examination of fast reactor fuels.
