In 2022, the first Russian NPP power block running fully on renewable fuel is to be launched

In 2022, the 4th power block of the Beloyarsk NPP with a BN-800 fast-neutron reactor will be the first one in the history of our country to fully switch to uranium- plutonium MOX fuel...

Vladimir Poplavsky: It is Too Early to Compare Lead to Sodium

As far back as in1949, Alexander Ilyich Leypunsky submitted to the Government an internal report in which he stated the fast technology potential in terms of nuclear fuel breeding; afterwards these ideas formed the basis for the concept of fast reactors...

This critical analysis of the history, state, and prospects of development of modern nuclear technologies shows that nuclear energy market has practically monopolized the design and construction of only one type of reactors (95% of NPPs under construction use pressurized water reactors), which necessitates training of focused specialists involved in the construction and operation of those nuclear power plants.
