Abstract

A safety analysis study has been applied to the Ignitor machine. Deterministic evaluations of radioactiveenvironmental releases have been performed. The preliminary radiological impact analysis for the normaloperation and the main accidental sequences of Ignitor, in case of its localization in the TRINITI site inRussia are presented. The site of TRINITI, hosting since decades nuclear installations, is well characterized,both from the meteorological and population aspects: many data have been collected over the years.The Ignitor machine, both during routine functioning and accidental sequences, presents a negligibleradiological impact. Ignitor does not need any concrete primary containment, like those used in fissionnuclear power plants. There is no need of people evacuation or emergency countermeasures even inpresence of the worst accident.
