China claims new nuclear technology

Chinese scientists have apparently been working on this technology for 24 years. State television says they have now perfected a procedure that will allow them to reprocess spent nuclear fuel. It is a complex and costly procedure but the recycled material can be used again to fuel nuclear power stations. China is not the first country to develop its own reprocessing facilities. France, Britain and India are just three countries that already have their own operations. But this breakthrough will have major implications in China. The country is building a number of new nuclear power plants in an effort to diversify its energy sources. It claims this new process could mean that supply will now last for 3,000 years.

  • Some Chinese scientists recognize it is a breakthrough of nuclear industry in China, and China would get rid of uranium supply constrain;
  • Some heavy people from CNNC thought it just fulfill the plan;
  • Some uranium traders considered the news came out due to the high price of uranium;
  • What do you think of it?
The congress will bring 4 top leaders to explore the truth:
Xiaodan HU, Chief Engineer & Vice General Manager, CNNC 404 Limited
Ruiping HAN, General Manager, China Nuclear International Uranium Corporation
Clark Beyer, Managing Director, Rio Tinto Uranium Ltd
