Nizhny Novgorod targets development of nuclear energy

The Nizhny Novgorod authorities have made the list of major scientific priorities in the region. The new list now includes the improvement and development of the atomic energy technology. The project will intensify the works on the development of fast sodium reactors, the nuclear fuel cycle, safe handling of radioactive wastes and spent nuclear fuel.

According to experts, the creation of fast neutron reactors, which allow to make nuclear energy safer and more cost-efficient, are virtually waste-free and provided with fuel for centuries to come. This work is the main activity for local company JSC OKBM Africantov.

"The adoption of this paper by the regional government is a positive factor for us.  Nizhny Novgorod companies play an important and even the leading role in these areas of knowledge," first deputy director, chief engineer of JSC OKBM Africantov, Vitaly Petrunin, said.

It was also noted that at present moment Russia is the world leader in terms of the development and practical construction of fast neutron reactors. At the same time, this line is still the most important strategic direction for the long-term development of State Corporation Rosatom, reports ADVIS.ru. 

 

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
