Integrated Nuclear Fuel Cycle Information System (iNFCIS)

INFCIS is a resource for technical and statistical information about nuclear fuel cycle activities worldwide, as reported to the IAEA.

The system includes four databases and one computer simulation system:

Nuclear Fuel Cycle Facilities Database (NFCFDB)

NFCFDB covers civilian nuclear fuel cycle facilities around the world. It contains information on operational and non-operational, planned, and cancelled facilities. All stages of nuclear fuel cycle activities are covered, starting from uranium ore production to spent fuel storage facilities. Nuclear Fuel Cycle can be defined as the set of processes to make use of nuclear materials and to return it to normal state. It starts with the mining of unused nuclear materials from the nature and ends with the safe disposal of used nuclear material in the nature.

World Distribution of Uranium Deposits Database (UDEPO)

UDEPO is a database of uranium deposits in the world. It contains information on the classification, geological characteristics, geographical distribution and technical characteristics of the uranium deposits worldwide. The website provides filtering and search capabilities that include the geological classification of the deposits, current status and country. UDEPO also provides tools to create dynamic summary reports.

Post Irradiation Examination Facilities Database (PIEDB)

PIEDB is a catalogue of post irradiation facilities (hot cells) worldwide. It includes a complete survey of the main characteristics of hot cells and their PIE capabilities. 

Nuclear Fuel Cycle Simulation System (NFCSS)

NFCSS, formerly known as VISTA, is a scenario-based computer model for the estimation of fuel cycle material, service requirements and actinide arisings. The NFCSS is a computer simulation system that uses simplified approaches to calculate fuel cycle requirements. The site provides a detailed description of the simulation system, an example scenario with results, and a simple calculation tool that can be used to calculate annual material flow in a selected nuclear fuel cycle option.

World Thorium Deposits and Resources (ThDEPO)

ThDEPO covers thorium deposits around the world.
