The status of high-temperature gas-cooled reactor development and design In the United States and other countries important benefits are foreseen from smaller, modular systems by L.D.

Mears and A.J. Goodjohn. Gas-cooled reactors have had a long and varied his-tory dating back to the very early days of nuclear energy development. A gas-cooled reactor (GCR) is a nuclear reactor that uses graphite as a neutron moderator and carbon dioxide as gh there are many other types of reactor cooled by gas, the terms GCR and to a lesser extent gas cooled reactor are particularly used to refer to this type of reactor.

The GCR was able to use natural uranium as fuel, enabling the countries that developed them to. Commercial gas cooled reactors are currently in use only in the United Kingdom.

International interest in developing high temperature gas cooled reactors is increasing because they can provide efficient and cost effective electricity and produce high-temperature process heat usable for various industrial applications. A gas reactor or GCR (English gas cooled reactor) is a type of nuclear nuclear reactor of nuclear neutron moderator of this type of nuclear reactor is graphite.

The coolant of the nuclear gas reactor is carbon dioxide in the gaseous state. According to the classification made by the International Atomic Energy Agency of the United Nations, IAEA, this type of reactors includes those /5(2).
