Tristructural isotropic (TRISO) coated particle fuel is a robust, microencapsulated fuel form developed originally for use in
high-temperature gas-cooled reactors (HTGRs).

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory will produce HALEU for upcoming new reactor demonstrations and for new fuels like CCTE’s ANEEL that will replace older fuels in some existing reactor designs.
TRi-structural ISOtropic particle fuel — or TRISO, for short — is a type of micro fuel particle, quite possibly the most robust type of nuclear fuel.
Tristructural isotropic (TRISO) particle fuel has long been used in high-temperature gas-cooled nuclear reactors, but it is seeing a resurgence as a result of other applications. Read more
