Madrid. — On April 17-19, the World Nuclear Fuel Cycle 2018 (WNFC) international conference organized by the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI) and the World Nuclear Association (WNA) takes place in Madrid. State Atomic Energy Corporation ROSATOM is the event's partner.

At the Conference it was announced that Kirill Komarov, First Deputy Director General for Corporate Development and International Business of ROSATOM, assumed the office of the Chairman of the WNA Board of Management.

Current issues of the nuclear fuel cycle (NFC) development and commercialization were at the top of the conference's agenda for the representatives of the world leading nuclear industry companies.

"Nuclear energy and technologies hold great opportunities to meet the global sustainable development challenges. Today the industry needs to develop new technologies at all stages of the life cycle to improve its economic efficiency and achieve the international goals to reduce CO2 emissions", the head of ROSATOM's regional center in Western Europe Andrey Rozhdestvin noted.

According to the company's representative, the NFC closure will be the next step for the global nuclear industry development. Russia nowadays creates the technological base to provide a practical solution for the closure of NFC with fast neutron reactors as the cornerstone of this process. Furthermore, Russia is continuing the testing of REMIX fuel that can be reprocessed several times and can significantly increase the effectiveness of uranium usage in light-water reactors. Another important project of the Russian nuclear industry in the field of NFC is the development of the accident tolerant fuel.

Mikhail Baryshnikov, the representative of TENEX, industrial integrator of international sales in the field of the back-end sector, presented the topic devoted to the development of the innovative technologies for the spent nuclear fuel (SNF) and radioactive waste (RW) management and the prospects for their commercialization. As it was highlighted by the speaker, "ROSATOM's technologies for managing SNF and RW, including waste fractionation, allow the company to return to its customers only the intermediate level waste (ILW) which does not require deep underground containment".

On April 17, within the Conference's framework, presentation of ROSATOM and National Geographic TV channel joint project called Wild Edens took place. The Wild Edens project informs about unique ecosystems that might disappear due to global warming unless clean carbon-free energy sources are used. A number of documentary films will show the life of representatives of unique species in their native habitats. The premier movie will be shown at the International Forum ATOMEXPO 2018 that will be held on May 14-16, 2018 in Sochi, Russia.

ROSATOM also cooperate with the Thailand Institute of Nuclear Technology (TINT) and Kinetics Corporation Ltd. on peaceful use of nuclear energy. In particular, in September The State Atomic Energy Corporation ROSATOM (Russia) and Kinetics Corporation Ltd. (Thailand) announced a joint project of a cyclotron complex with radiochemical laboratories for the TINT. The facility will be located at Ongkharak Nuclear Research Centre in Nakhon Nayok. The project is expected to be implemented within 3 years.
