US-based X-energy announced on 9 August that it will expand its fuel division as a wholly owned subsidiary called TRISO-X to commercially develop its proprietary tristructural isotropic (TRISO) fuel for the burgeoning advanced nuclear energy sector. Dr Pete Pappano, X-energy’s Vice President of fuel production, will lead the new company as its President. Since joining X-energy in 2015, Dr Pappano has been instrumental in supporting the company’s ability to produce advanced nuclear fuel at a commercial scale. As the leader of X-energy’s ARC15 project, a five-year programme funded by the Department of Energy, he established a commercial-scale fuel line at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which has demonstrated the company’s patented TRISO fabrication process leading to higher yields and higher quality fuel.
