Aus­tralia en­ters nu­clear re­search part­ner­ship

The Australian Energy Review - - NEWS -

AUS­TRALIA has of­fi­cially joined global re­search group the Gen­er­a­tion IV In­ter­na­tional Fo­rum (GIF) Frame­work Agree­ment to as­sist in the devel­op­ment and de­sign of the next gen­er­a­tion of nu­clear en­ergy sys­tems.

Aus­tralian re­searchers will work along­side coun­tries such as France, China, Ja­pan and the US to de­velop sys­tems that pro­duce less waste, use fuel more ef­fi­ciently and meet strin­gent safety de­mands.

Aus­tralian Nu­clear Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy Or­gan­i­sa­tion (ANSTO) chief ex­ec­u­tive Dr Adi Pater­son said while nu­clear en­ergy was not cur­rently part of the Aus­tralian en­ergy mix, it had sig­nif­i­cant lo­cal ex­per­tise.
