The presentation will provide the background and status of the project. We are aiming at developing a prototype, and perform online tests at ISOLDE, of a high power circulating Pb/Bi loop target for EURISOL, for the production of radioactive ion beams.

The Belgian Nuclear Research Center SCK•CEN is currently working on the design of the MYRRHA research reactor, able to operate in both critical and sub-critical mode as an Accelerator-Driven System (ADS). When operated as an ADS, the MYRRHA reactor core will be coupled to an external neutron source, which consists of a 600-MeV, 2- to 4-mA proton beam impinging on a lead-bismuth spallation target. By using a small fraction (up to 5%) of the MYRRHA proton beam, intensities of 100-200 uA can be sent to a separate facility called ISOL@MYRRHA, where pure and intense Radioactive Ion Beams (RIBs) will be produced via the Isotope Separator On Line method. ISOL@MYRRHA aims to be complementary to existing facilities, focusing on experimental programs requiring long uninterrupted beam times. In this talk, the MYRRHA and ISOL@MYRRHA facilities will be introduced and the status of the project will be given. Links to the project on the development of a Pb/Bi loop target for EURISOL will be made.

It is expected that the huge amount of radioactivity will be produced at lead bismuth eutectic converter targets. We would like to set our goal to study detailed chemistry for separation of these radionuclides from the LBL.
