This report discusses mainly the fabrication of inert matrix fuels. There are three fabrication routes to obtain inert matrix fuels (IMF). IMF is a dispersion-type fuel in which the actinide phase is distributed as a separate phase in a so called inert matrix. This concept has evolved as one of the most promising in the field of transmutation. The following section discusses each manufacturing route aside.
Mixed oxide fuels (Nuclear engineering); Nuclear fuels – Design and construction; Plutonium; Radioactive wastes—Transmutation; Uranium
