Abstract

The TRADE experiment, to be performed in the TRIGA reactor of the ENEA-Casaccia Centre, consists in the coupling of an external proton accelerator to a target to be installed in the central channel of the reactor scrammed to sub-criticality. This pilot experiment, aimed at a global demonstration of the ADS concept, is based on an original idea of Carlo Rubbia, presented at CEA in October 2000. A Feasibility Report was prepared by an ENEA (+ partners: Ansaldo, CERN) and CEA Working Group over 2001-beginning of 2002, and delivered to the ENEA/CEA management which endorsed the document in its meeting of May 7, 2002. The investigations have indicated that no show-stoppers exist and, therefore, they have provided credibility to a realistic implementation of the experiment in the time horizon of 2006-2008. An external presentation - at international level - of the results of the feasibility study was given in Rome, on June 7, 2002.
