TRANSAT

TRANSAT is an international project funded par H2020 (NRFP-14) .
TRANSAT (TRANSversal Actions for Tritium) is a 4-year multidisciplinary project that will contribute to improving the knowledge on tritium management in fission and fusion facilities. It will aim to address the challenges related to tritium release mitigation strategies and waste management improvement, and refine knowledge in the fields of radiotoxicity, radiobiology, and dosimetry.
TRANSAT involves 18 partners coming from 8 country. TRANSAT duration is 48 months (2017 - 2021).

The project aims to achieve 3 strategic objectives :
- TRANSAT will focus on technologies that will help reduce tritium permeation during the conceptual phase of nuclear reactors or devices.
- Tritiated waste management will aim to be improved through innovative measurements that assess both tritium inventory and profile, and through improved mitigation concepts in the case of tritium release above the acceptance criteria of the storage facility.
- Investigations will aim to improve the knowledge in the fields of radiobiology, dosimetry, radiotoxicology, genotoxicology and ecotoxicology, and of the environmental consequences in the case of contamination by tritiated products.
