R&D of the Partitioning and Transmutation Technology

Partitioning and Transmutation (P&T) technology is to separate elements in high level radioactive waste discharged from the reprocessing plant depending on intended use to transmute long-lived nuclides to short-lived or stable ones.

R&D of the the High TemperatureGas-cooled Reactor

The High Temperature Gas-cooled Reactor can be taken out even at the high temperature by about 1000 degrees because the helium gas is a very stable substance. The hydrogen expected as next generation's energy can be made without exhausting CO2 by generating electricity at this high temperature.
