AFM - Advanced Fuel Management
Advanced Fuel Management (AFM) is a globally integrated Framatome program designed to deliver fuel with higher enrichment and burnup limits. Enriching uranium oxide past the traditional 5 weight percent thresholds combined with our latest technology allows you to maximize your energy production. The increases in enrichment and burnup open the door to improved economic performance by extracting more cycle energy from your reactor core and reducing Operations & Maintenance (O&M) costs. The AFM program encompasses all aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle including enrichment services, regulatory licensing and fuel fabrication infrastructure.
