«ATOMEXPO 2024» will discuss the development of generation IV reactor technologies as an integral part of the nuclear energy system

25 March
On March 25, as part of the XIII International Forum «Atomexpo-2024» in Sochi, a panel discussion will be held on the topic “IV generation: already a reality.”

The event will be attended by representatives of industry and international organizations, as well as foreign experts from China, Indonesia and other countries. The session will be moderated by international expert Alexander Bychkov.

The discussion participants will discuss the current stage of development of generation IV reactor technologies as an integral part of the closed nuclear fuel cycle energy system. During the discussion, the export potential and international market requirements for promising technologies will be analyzed and a conclusion will be drawn about the possibility of their commercialization in the near future.

The event will take place on March 25, from 14:30 to 16:00, in Sochi, in the Sirius Science and Arts Park (hall No. 4). Entry for forum participants is free.

For reference:

IV generation reactors are capable of radically changing the nuclear energy industry, primarily due to a new level of safety, expansion of the fuel range and a significant reduction in radioactive waste. Russia is one of the leaders in the development of IV generation technologies.

At the Beloyarsk NPP, pre-design work has begun on the construction of a fourth generation power unit - BN-1200M. At the same time, in the Tomsk region, for the first time in world practice, a nuclear power plant with a IV generation reactor BREST-OD-300 and an on-site closed nuclear fuel cycle are being created on the same site.

«The ATOMEXPO International Forum» is the main event of the global nuclear industry, the largest exhibition and business platform where the current state of the nuclear industry is discussed and trends for its further development are formed. Conducted since 2009. The forum is attended by heads of key companies in the global nuclear industry, government agencies, international and public organizations, and leading experts. The forum format includes an exhibition and congress with an extensive business program, the main event of which is the plenary session. Panel discussions and round tables discuss topics that are most important for the nuclear industry. Leading companies in the global nuclear industry and related industries present their technologies and competencies at the exhibition.

Russia is actively developing scientific cooperation with all interested countries. Despite external restrictions, the implementation of large international projects continues. Rosatom and its divisions take an active part in this work.
