AHWR (11)

The advanced heavy-water reactor (AHWR) is the latest Indian design for a next-generation nuclear reactor that burnsthorium in its fuel core. It is slated to form the third stage in India's three-stage fuel-cycle plan. This phase of the fuel cycle plan is supposed to be built starting with a 300MW prototype in 2016. AHWR has been one of the few reactors in the world that have already strived to meet the requirements of innovative next-generation nuclear reactors as has been spelt out in several international forums.
