Belarusian scientists participate in global nuclear energy research

December 25, 2008


Belarusian scientists participate in global researches in the field of nuclear power engineering, Anatoly Yakushev, Deputy Director of the United Energy and Nuclear Research Institute Sosny of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, told a press conference in Minsk on December 4.

He noted, Belarus is a participant of the IAEA’s International Project on Innovative Nuclear Reactors and Fuel Cycles (INPRO). Around 50 countries are part of the project’s supervising committee and Belarus is a full-fledged member.

As part of the INPRO movement general recommendations have been developed. Every country can use them to define whether the development of domestic nuclear energy is advisable and economically expedient for it. Around two years ago several cooperation projects meant to resolve global nuclear energy industry issues were initiated. All in all, there are 12 such projects, with Belarus taking an active part in two of them. “One project is related to the global structure of nuclear energy industry in the distant future taking into account the closed fuel cycle. Another project is related to studying and developing passive security systems for nuclear power plants,” said Anatoly Yakushev.

Besides, in line with the INPRO a research into what nuclear technologies will be in demand in future has been carried out. It was supposed to share information between present owners of the technologies and their future users, said the scientist. Researches have been carried out in eight countries, including Belarus, and each country has presented its vision of what reactor types and what capacities will be in demand in the future.
