RUSSIAN NUCLEAR FUEL

РУССКОЕ ЯДЕРНОЕ ТОПЛИВО

TASS - Accident-tolerant nuclear fuel Rosatom specialists created in 2018 will considerably enhance the safety of nuclear power plants, the A.A. Bochvar High Technology Research Institute for Inorganic Materials (VNIINM) said in a news release.

Tolerant fuel is resistant to major nuclear power plant failures. It is to stay integral in complex breakdowns at nuclear power plants and by no means trigger zirconium-steam reaction that causes the emission of explosive hydrogen.

"The introduction of accident-tolerant nuclear fuel is of key importance to bringing the systemic security and reliability of nuclear power to a qualitatively new level," the news release says.

Earlier, it was announced that Rosatom specialists had made experimental samples of unique accident-tolerant nuclear fuel for nuclear power plants and in the near future will load it into the research reactor MIR of the Scientific Research Institute of Atomic Reactors (an affiliate of Rosatom).

VNIINM CEO Leonid Karpyuk said the institute had coped with the task of creating accident-tolerant fuel in just one year.

"Research into this fuel has been underway around the world for a rather long time, about ten years. It was essential for us to conduct research and development works and develop uranium-molybdenum fuel and the know-how of applying protective coating to the fuel assemblies. We coped with this task successfully," he said.

Companies' profiles

TVEL incorporates enterprises for the manufacturing of nuclear fuel, conversion and enrichment of uranium, production of gas centrifuges and also research, development and design organizations.

It is the sole provider of nuclear fuel for Russian nuclear power plants and 72 nuclear power reactors in 14 countries around the world, research reactors in eight countries and Russian ships' nuclear power plants.

The A.A. Bochvar High Technology Research Institute for Inorganic Materials (VNIINM) conducts research, development and design work for creating accident-tolerant fuel and is Russia's main designer of fuel assemblies.

AVAILABLE ENERGY FOR DEVELOPMENT

WNN - "Some countries choose to pursue nuclear power with a view that it can play an important role in the global sustainable energy mix,” the Outcome Document states, noting that nuclear power is the second largest source of low-carbon electricity, after hydropower. It adds that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's 1.5-degree pathway report estimates that nuclear power generation will need to grow 2.5 times by 2050 if objectives are to be met

RUSSIAN NUCLEAR SAFETY

WNN - According to the Rosenergoatom statement, Peter Tarren, head of the IAEA's Operational Safety Section and leader of the team said: "From the point of view of the IAEA, this mission was very successful. Experts concluded that everything is working very well at Rosenergoatom. Each organisation may strive for improvement, but what I saw here at the company is a real commitment to safety principles."

NUCLEAR FOR CLIMATE CHANGES

WNN - "We acknowledge the contribution of, and potential for the applications of nuclear science and technology to meet a wide variety of basic socio-economic and human development needs; we recognise the progress made in all Member States in addressing such development needs and the benefits achieved from the application of nuclear techniques in both developing and developed States; and we underscore the growing need and demand for further utilisation of nuclear applications worldwide."

NUCLEAR POWER FOR CLIMATE

WNN - Climate change is the most significant threat to our planet today. The latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report on the impacts of global warming reaching 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels sends a clear warning that this increase may be exceeded by 2030-2050 unless radical action is taken. Nuclear power is a low-carbon source of energy. According to the IPCC, the median lifecycle emissions from nuclear are 12g/kWh, as low as wind energy.

GREEN NUCLEAR ENERGY

WNN - "nuclear energy is a "mature, low greenhouse gas emission source of baseload generation that could make an increasing contribution to global development based on low-carbon energy supply".

NUCLEAR NEEDS INVESTMENT

WNN - world electricity generation increases from 25,679 TWh in 2017 to 30,253 TWh in 2025 and to 40,443 TWh in 2040. Global nuclear generation increases from 2637 TWh in 2017 to 3726 TWh in 2040, when it will account for around 9% of total electricity production, down from the current level of about 10.5%. Fossil fuels remain the major source for electricity generation under this scenario, but their share falls from around two-thirds today to under 50% by 2040.
