Last week, members of the ITER Tritium Division and Communication Office visited the Tritium Laboratory (TLK) in Karlsruhe, Germany. The Karlsruhe Tritium Lab is the only scientific laboratory in Europe able to handle tritium in technical amounts for fusion-related applications. It has a lot of similarities with the future ITER tritium plant. The tritium technology developed at TLK comprises areas such as efficient tritium recovery and minimization of waste, tritium storage and accountancy, detritiation of materials, development and optimization of tritium analytics, and safety improvements.
