The worldwide energy demand is growing rapidly, whilst the use of fossil fuels becomes an unattractive solution because of reduced availability and impact on climate change. Nuclear energy is currently considered as a serious low carbon alternative which can provide sufficient amounts of energy using only a small amount of fission material. Moreover, the pressing demands of sustainable, efficient and safer processes make operations in intensified small scale devices an appealing option.
