Therefore we want to discuss one of the three currently available NPP designs – the EPR. Well-known independent experts explained what the safety…

Joint Project Webinar on Taxonomy and Small Modular Reactors (SMR)

On July 6, 2022 the European Parliament voted to include gas and nuclear in the EU taxonomy. This leads to the inclusion of the so-called Advanced Reactors as a Green transitional technology. In our webinar we discussed what the EP decisions will mean for nuclear technology and the SMR/Advanced Reactors in particular. After a talk…

Joint Project Webinar on actual status of deep geological repository preparation and impact on EU taxonomy

Nuclear waste management or rather the lack of it has been the nuclear industry’s Achilles’ heel. Now more than ever industry claims having found the solution, the first Deep Geological Repositories (DGR) might start operating in the next years. The EU Taxonomy which is supposed to bring in fresh funds for nuclear construction, brought the…

In the webinar, about 20 participants from 13 countries took part. Programme Presentations…

Alarming results on geological risk at the Paks NPP site

The results of the peer reviewed report “NPP Paks II: Paleo-seismological assessment of the Siting Report and the Site License with respect to fault capability” showed that evidence for a capable fault at the site was swept under the carpet. According to the International Atomic Energy Agency’s (IAEA) guidelines, the Western European Nuclear Regulator’s Association…
