RUSSIAN STOCKS OF URANIUM AND PLUTONIUM WILL LAST FOR 30 YEARS
Russia?s stockpiles of uranium and plutonium will ensure the sustainable development of the national nuclear power engineering for the next 30 years, according to Igor Borovkov, First Deputy Minister of Nuclear Power. He was speaking at the 2nd All-Russian Energy Forum.
?The uranium and plutonium reserves accumulated in Russia should ensure the sustainable operations and development of the nuclear power sector up to the end of the 2030s,? said he. Borovkov also said that demand for nuclear energy could reach 270-300 billion megawatt-hour should the economic growth be robust enough.
?This will lead to a 1.8 time increase in demand for electrical energy produced by the nuclear power plants,? said the Deputy Minister. He also estimated that demand for electrical energy generated by the nuclear power plants should reach 170 billion megawatt-hour by the year 2008, as reported by ITAR-TASS News Agency.
