The objective of the GE project is to demonstrate that advanced steels such as iron-chromium-aluminum (FeCrAl) alloys could be used as accident tolerant fuel cladding material in commercial light water reactors. The GE project does not include fuel development. Current findings support the concept that a FeCrAl alloy could be used for the cladding of commercial nuclear fuel. The use of this alloy will benefit the public since it is going to make the power generating light water reactors safer.

After the Fukushima reactor accidents following Japan's March 2011 tsunami, the U.S. Department of Energy engaged with nuclear fuel vendors to develop improved fuels for the current fleet of light water power reactors. General Electric and Oak Ridge National Laboratory have proposed using iron-chrome-aluminum (FeCrAl) ferritic alloys as cladding material for the existing uranium dioxide fuel (UO2). This is a simple approach that leaves unchanged the present coolable geometry in the reactor. FeCrAl alloys have outstanding resistance, in accident conditions,

Since the 2011 accident at the Daiichi nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan, there has been a worldwide effort to develop so-called accident tolerant fuel (ATF) technologies to enhance safety during design basis and beyond design basis accidents. Part of the ATF development effort involves replacing much of the zirconium-based materials in light water reactors (LWRs). This is due to the accelerated oxidation rate of zirconium at high temperatures potentially experienced during severe accidents, which led to the build-up of hydrogen
