The main problem with that approach would be that tritium would be released to the environment at levels that would be unacceptable from a licensing perspective.


Interestingly, Dr. Peterson's group on the PB-FHR mk1 seems to be convinced that some barrier coatings, combined with sorption on graphite in the fluoride salt, will be sufficient.


The data does not support that belief.

That is what I told Dr. Peterson as well. In addition I mentioned the risk of coating degradation resulting in higher tritium leaks and possible lengthy shutdowns. They are quite adamant. Perhaps they know things we don't.
