Materials Performance Centre

Materials performance is fundamental to the nuclear industry in clean up and decommissioning, plant operation and life extension, as well as potential new build. The Materials Performance Centre (MPC) is the largest nuclear materials research centre in UK academia, with over 70 researchers and over £30 million research income. The MPC is a National Centre of Excellence in nuclear materials research and training.

Nuclear Graphite

Nuclear Graphite Research is based in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering (MACE) at the University of Manchester and is an integral part of the cross-school Materials Performance Centre. The Group was formed with the aim of building up a strong research activity at the University of Manchester on nuclear graphite technology so as to develop expertise that can be used to provide independent advice and research to both national and international nuclear organizations and companies.

Centre for Radiochemistry Research

The Centre for Radiochemistry Research (CRR) was established in 1999 in a partnership with BNFL. It is unique in the UK, forming a national focus for radiochemistry research, and we are primarily interested in the chemistry of the radioactive elements, particularly Tc and the transuranic elements. Our research activities link closely to many aspects of the nuclear industry, from process chemistry to decommissioning, waste management and environmental impact.
