Kurła (╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻, napisałem eleganckiego posta i wypok mi się wykrzaczył.
Na szczęście nie działo się w poprzednim tygodniu nic mega ciekawego ( ͡º ͜ʖ͡º), więc w streszczonej formie:
No chociaż jednak jedna rzecz mnie trochę zintrygowała. Przeglądając rosyjsko języczne internety w poszukiwaniu niusów dla was trafiłem na artykuł traktujący o samochodzie z reaktorem torowym #torowehipsterstwo xD
Generalnie nie wiem czy to żart czy nie, ale jakby ktoś chciał poczytać:
rus. i filmik na yt po angielskiemu.
1. China National Nuclear Corp (CNNC) is looking to increase investment in overseas uranium mining to ensure fuel supply for the expected growth in its domestic nuclear power generation, Reuters reported a company official as saying.
2. Nucleoelectrica Argentina, the state-run operator of the Atucha-1 nuclear power unit in Argentina, has made progress in ageing management and preparedness for the long-term operation (LTO) of the unit, an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) peer review mission said.
3. The net capacity of both nuclear power units at the Loviisa nuclear power station in Finland is now 507 MW (net) after modification and improvement work carried out during recent outages, owner and operator Fortum told NucNet in an email.
4. (2.11.2018) The UK and Canada today signed a bilateral Nuclear Cooperation Agreement (NCA), the third such agreement signed by the UK this year in preparation for its exit from the European Union. It will allow the UK and Canada to continue their „mutually beneficial” civil nuclear cooperation when current European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) arrangements cease to apply in the UK, Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) said.
5. Equipment contaminated with plutonium from the manufacturing of fuel for deep space missions has been removed from the 235-F building at the US Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site, marking a milestone in reducing risk at the South Carolina facility.
6. The US Department of Energy (DOE) is seeking public comment on a draft environmental assessment for a proposal to fabricate nuclear fuel at Idaho National Laboratory (INL) to support US efforts to develop and deploy new reactor technologies. The high-assay low enriched uranium (HALEU) fuel would be fabricated from blended-down used fuel from the now-decommissioned Experimental Breeder Reactor-II (EBR-II), which operated at the site from 1964 to 1994.
Used high-enriched uranium fuel from EBR-II’s operations are currently refined and downblended at INL’s Materials and Fuels Complex (MFC) using an electrorefiner. The HALEU thus produced – which contains 5-20% of fissile uranium-235 – is currently stored at INL.
The low-enriched uranium (LEU) fuel used in today’s nuclear power plants typically contains less than 5% of fissile uranium-235, but many of the advanced reactor designs currently under development will require HALEU fuel. There are at present no commercial facilities in the US that are immediately capable of producing HALEU.
