UK-Canadian partnership to develop hydrogen isotope management for nuclear fusion

The UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) and Canadian Nuclear Laboratories (CNL) have partnered on the development of technologies for the management of a hydrogen isotope for nuclear fusion.

Nuclear fusion is the process found in stars where pairs of atoms are heated and forced together to make one heavier atom and then releasing energy – the opposite to nuclear fission which splits atoms apart.

Under the collaboration framework agreement, the partnership will focus on tritium management within the fusion cycle to safely remove, process and reinject fuel into plasma continuously.
