  • Combustion of 1 atom of C => 4 eV; Fission of 1 atom of U => 200 MeV
  • In thermal reactors, the fission is caused by thermal neutrons having energy less than 0.025 eV. This type of reactor uses natural uranium as fuel. The neutrons generated during fission posses very high energy which are slowed down with the help of a moderators to reduce the energy of neutrons less than 0.025 eV. In fast reactors, fission is basically caused by neutron possessing energy more than 1 MeV. Another important process that is taking place in the fast reactor is breeding of fissile material.
  • In the first stage of our programme we have 12 PHWRs and 2 boiling water reactors operating with high capacity ratio. 8 more reactors are under construction and several other are planned to have potential od generating 10 GWe. A fast breeder test reactor (FBTR) of 40 MW thermal capacity is operating and has given us experience in fast breeder reactor technology. In this category, a 500 Mwe Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR) is under construction. We have now initiated the third stage also with a 30 MW thermal reactor named KAMINI which uses thorium fuel. As a futher development in this stage an Advance Heavy Water Reactor (AHWR) and Compact Heavy Water Reactor (CHTR) are being developed. The development of ADS I.e Accelerated Driven Systems can enable early introduction of Thorium on a large scale.
