    Conceptual and experimental studies on LMFBR reprocessing and reactor off-gas purification Systems are summarized. lodine sorption on zeolites, low-temperature adsorption of noble gases on charcoal and catalytic oxidation of hydrogen, simulating tritium, are being studied in laboratory set-ups. A pilot loop with 25 m3h-1 throughput has been constructed. Results are quoted from the first phase of the iodine removal programme by scrubbing systems. Further extension of the test loop, comprising off-gases conditioning prior to removal of krypton in a cryodistillation unit, has been prepared.
    Delay-bed studies on 33 Xe extraction from LWR off-gases are reported.
