Studies on ADS fuel development within the framework of the EUROTRANS programme have provided a wide range of results. Several cores loaded with the primary fuel candidates, MgO-cercer and Mo-cermet, have been designed and optimised. Preliminary thermo-mechanical calculations for the hottest fuel rods have given evidence of good performances. The current paper gives an overview of the results gained and some recommendations on the most promising fuels.
