Idaho National Laboratory (INL) scientists have set a new world record with next-generation particle fuel for use in high temperature gas reactors (HTGRs). The Advanced Gas Reactor (AGR) Fuel Program, initiated by the Department of Energy in 2002, used INL's unique Advanced Test Reactor (ATR) in a nearly three-year experiment to subject more than 300,000 nuclear fuel particles to an intense neutron field and temperatures around 1,250 degrees Celsius. INL researchers say the fuel experiment...

By Hagadone, Zach A breakthrough at the Idaho National Laboratory may lead the way forward for the commercial use of hydrogen produced through high- temperature electrolysis (HTE), specifically in the area of oil production. "The biggest (commercial application) at this stage is in sweetening heavy crude or low-grade crude - stuff that is really thick," said INL spokesman Lou Riepl. "You need a good source of hydrogen to be able to make it truly useable and recoverable." The way industry...

By Hagadone, Zach Some of the biggest problems with solar energy, according to many energy experts, are that most solar panels are expensive to build, often unwieldy to install and produce energy intermittently and inefficiently. But researchers at the Idaho National Laboratory have come up with a technology that may beat those problems called "flexible nanoantenna arrays" - specially treated polyethylene plastic sheets embossed with billions of gold, solar energy-collecting nanoantennas...
