Institute for Cryogenic and Isotopic Technologies (ICIT) Rm.Valcea has built an experimental pilot plant having as the main objective the development of a technology for detritiation of heavy water processed in CANDU-type reactors at the nuclear power plant in Cernavoda, Romania. Within ICIT were developed laboratories that cover a wide area of investigations in the field of tritium research, which enabled ICIT to be part of the detritiation technology group for ITER. There are also a number of support activities and a tritium research program which are presented as an overview of the ICIT new research tasks.  

This work is focused on the presentation of ICIT research activities, perspectives and its capability related to water detritiation technologies and also to the development of research on issues in the field of nuclear fusion.
