ROSATOM-CICE&T hosted training for two specialists from Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission on the topic “Fuel Cycle and Waste Management” May 18 – June 11, 2015. This training is organized under the IAEA Technical Cooperation Programme in agreement with State Atomic Energy Corporation ROSATOM.
The main training objective is to learn main stages of nuclear fuel cycle and isotopic composition of fresh and spent nuclear fuel; to describe the main processes occurring during the irradiation of nuclear fuel in a reactor and outline the nuclear fuel fabrication technologies; to enable gaining knowledge about NPP layout and introduce to the possibilities of severe and beyond-design accidents analysis at NPP with WWER and to describe the technology issues of spent fuel handling and nuclear waste management. Basic form of the course is a combination of lectures and practices given by experts and facility visits (e.g. Technical tour to Leningrad NPP-II).
Experts from People’s Republic of Bangladesh as a newcomer-country developing its national nuclear programme oriented to WWER Technology have repeatedly participated in trainings and workshops organized in ROSATOM-CICE&T (http://rosatomtech.com/?cat=22).
