India has been given the green light to take part in the ITER (international thermonuclear experimental reactor
) consortium alongside the United States, China, South Korea, Russia and Japan.
Cogema has moreover been contracted by JNFL to provide assistance in starting up a reprocessing plant at the Rokkasho-mura installation, which already houses three other nuclear facilities and is the EU's rival candidate to host the future International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor
The JNC says it would be more effective to use it at the experimental reactor
than to keep it in storage, adding that plutonium will deteriorate with time.
The international fusion community appears to be exploring the possibility that the United States will rejoin the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor
Japan will recommend Kaname Ikeda, a former bureaucrat with science and technology expertise, as the candidate to head the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor
[ITER] project organization, the science ministry said October 18.
But the prototype was shut down without the commercial-use prospects for the advanced thermal reactor technologies as a project to build the next-stage experimental reactor
in Aomori Prefecture was revoked in 1995 due to high costs.
Both Europe and Japan have let it be known that they plan to put in bids to host the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor
These meetings aim to define Japan's proposals on the actual launch of the international thermonuclear experimental reactor
Nuclear energy experts have said the reason North Korea was able to reactivate its experimental reactor
only about two months after breaking the seals was that it was conducting maintenance work on the facilities even after their operations were frozen under the Agreed Framework.
For this purpose, construction of a fusion experimental reactor
has the highest priority milestone toward this goal of DEMO," Inoue said.
