The neutron energy boundaries of the JHR range between 1-10-11 and 20 MeV (thermal reactor) with the part from 1-10-9 to 10 MeV being of greater importance.
Compared to the previous catalyst manufactured from polymers susceptible to radiation in general, which was used for heavy water refinement at the Advanced Thermal Reactor "Fugen Nuclear Power Station", the performance of this newly developed catalyst is not affected even by a radiation dose of 530 kGy.
The 165,000-kilowatt reactor, an original Japanese prototype of the advanced thermal reactor, generated a total of some 22 billion kw-hours and generated revenues worth some 206.5 billion yen, according to the institute.
Antinuclear activists and others are furious that the Fugen advanced thermal reactor (ATR) in western Japan, which was shut down last May following a radioactive leak and is to be dismantled, is to resume operations for 10 months.
The dismantling of the Fugen advanced thermal reactor in Tsuruga, Fukui Prefecture, will cost some 84 billion yen, sources at the government-operated Japan Nuclear Cycle Development Institute said Monday.
The tritium leak was detected in a facility housing the Fugen advanced thermal reactor. It occurred between the exterior of the reactor container and a concrete wall surrounding the facility.

The pluthermal process uses MOX fuel to power a thermal reactor. The fuel is made by mixing uranium with plutonium chemically extracted from spent nuclear fuel.
The process entails using MOX fuel, which is made by mixing uranium with plutonium chemically extracted from spent nuclear fuel, to power a thermal reactor. The plebiscite will be the first of its kind in Japan.

(TEPCO) will put off plans to use plutonium-uranium mixed oxide (MOX) fuel in a thermal reactor at its Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant in Niigata Prefecture due to opposition from locals, company sources said Wednesday.
Growing usage of ceramic fibers in power plants for insulation, turbines, thermal reactors, boilers, and metal industries is expected to drive the global fireproof ceramics market demand over the projected period.
