First Cyclife participation to the Waste management symposium | Cyclife

During operation, the PWR control rods are either completely extracted (scram or safety rods) or partially inserted in the operating zone of the core (fine control or operating rods). Since the insertion is limited to a few tens of cm, only the lower part of the control rods are subjected to a significant neutron flux with an impact on the neutron activation and so on the waste classification (Low Activity Short-lived Waste versus Intermediate Activity Long-lived Waste) .
