World Nuclear News: Moltex Energy USA LLC has been awarded USD2.55 million of US federal funding to develop technologies that will be capable of shortening Stable Salt Reactor construction timelines to under three years.
Mike Byfield, writer for the Daily Oil Bulletin: One gram of uranium produces as much energy as one tonne of oil. Most of the nuclear fuel waste is either recyclable or easily handled because it has only very low levels of radioactivity. The remaining waste - non-recyclable and highly radioactive - is very low volume, according to EFN. The electricity needed for one human lifetime leaves waste of this type equivalent in size to a golf ball. Everyone should recognize the rising costs of fossil fuels versus the stable cost of nuclear power. And in the future, humanity will need the long-chain hydrocarbon atoms to make petrochemicals and plastics. For reasons of economy and the environment, the use of nuclear energy in the oil sands is just a matter of time."
Alexei Likhachev, CEO Rosatom: "We are convinced that the future of nuclear energy cannot be separated from fast neutron reactors and closed nuclear fuel cycle. Today Russia is a leader in this field. We are building a multi-purpose fast breeder reactor in Dimitrovgrad. In Seversk, we are running the Breakthrough Project, an ambitious pilot center comprising fast neutron reactors and facilities for MOX fuel fabrication and spent fuel reprocessing." Former leading countries in fast reactor technology have stopped developing it because their political leaders yielded to their own misunderstandings, to voters and to anti-nuclear organizations. What will be the fate of these democracies - France, Germany, Japan, United Kingdom, United States and the fate of nuclear power in many other countries?
