プルトニウム燃料第三開発室(PFPF)では、1988年より、工学規模での高速炉用MOX燃料の製造技術開発及び常陽・もんじゅの用MOX燃料の製造を行ってきた。特に、低密度仕様である「もんじゅ」の燃料製造では、様々な課題に直面したものの、製造技術の高度化により、それらの課題を克服してきた。本発表では、これまでにPFPFで培われた工学規模でのMOX燃料製造技術及び近年の燃料製造技術開発成果について報告する。

Japan Atomic Energy Agency has developed mixed plutonium-uranium oxide (MOX) fuel fabrication technologies in large-scale and fabricated MOX fuel assemblies for experimental fast reactor "JOYO" and prototype fast reactor "MONJU" at Plutonium Fuel Production Facility (PFPF) since 1988. Low density pellet is adopted as MONJU fuel. For the low density pellet fabrication in large-scale, various challenges were encountered. In order to resolve these challenges, countermeasures such as new pore former with high softening temperature and improved granulation method for MOX powder were considered. In this presentation, accumulated MOX fuel fabrication technologies as mentioned above and recent R&D activity such as new pelletizing method, or die wall lubrication pelletizing, for low-decontaminated TRU fuel fabrication will be discussed.
