Since the accident at Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station, enhancing the accident tolerance of Light Water Reactors (LWRs) became a topic of serious discussion, and the research and development for improving the safety LWRs has been activated in many countries. This project is one of the projects that entrusted from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry Agency for Natural Resources and Energy. Using a domestic human source, an analysis tool, know-how and experience, the basic technique to apply an accident tolerant fuel material to an existing LWRs is developed in the project. It is started from October, 2015 and is carrying out this project continuously.
