Promising process for the industrial production of Berylliden

Promising process for the industrial production of Beryllides

In 2017, together with our cooperation partners the decision was made to start production research activities.
The focus is on the question how to produce ITER relevant amounts with high efficiency.
For a so called Test-Blanket-Modul 300 kg of Beryllium or Beryllides and 150 Kg of Lithium-ceramics will be necessary.
Several countries have different concepts, but most of them are based on the use of pebbles.
We succeeded in pointing out one production process which is presently being optimized.
The gained expertise will also help to find processes for a fusion reactor like DEMO, which will need the mentioned amount a 1000 times.
