Today's reactor technologies depend on solid fuel rods leading to a
complex fuel cycle. The operation of liquid-fueled homogeneous reactors
(i.e. molten-salt reactors) leads to a tradeoff between optimal fuel
processing and coolant handling.

The Dual Fluid Reactor (DFR), developed by the Institut für
Festkörper-Kernphysik gGmbH (Institute for Solid-State Nuclear Physics),
combines the advantages of a lead-cooled fast reactor with the fuel
processing capabilities of the molten-salt reactor, gaining a very high
level in safety and economy. The DFR is being designed with respect to
the Energy Return on Invested (EROI) measure and passive safety
standards according to the KISS principle and with attention to the
state of technology in mechanical, plant and chemical engineering for a
speedy implementation.
