Abstract in different language: The innovative emissions-free concept of future district heating source TEPLATOR was introduced in 2020 by a group of researchers from CTU in Prague and UWB in Pilsen in the Czech Republic. TEPLATOR will use already spent nuclear fuel assemblies for a clean and economical heat-only production with an output range between 50 MWt and 170 MWt. This article evaluates the progress of the TEPLATOR applicability potential development, mainly focusing on the TEPLATOR fuelling. The TEPLATOR facility potential location assumes a significant heat demand exceeding 1.5 PJ per year, and a currently operating district heating network is required. Then the production price of heat generated by TEPLATOR could reach less than 2 EUR per GJ of energy, which indicates an attractive alternative to the outdated coal-based heating plants and new intended gas boilers. The popularity of district heating varies across Europe, and there currently exist many promising locations for the TEPLATOR application. The fuelling of TEPLATOR will be provided with the spent fuel from NPPs operating VVER, PWR, or BWR. The overview of the reserves of available fuel assemblies in EU countries is presented and assessed for the TEPLATOR use. The possibilities of spent nuclear fuel transportation have been investigated and evaluated. The final economic assessment of spent fuel utilization is provided. An alternative approach for the countries with no light water reactors in operation represents slightly enriched fresh nuclear fuel. The economic study of the TEPLATOR operation with fresh fuel has been performed and compared with the possibility of spent nuclear fuel use.
