Russia's new nuclear reactor will run on waste nuclear fuel

One of the main disadvantages of modern nuclear reactors is the presence of a large amount of spent nuclear fuel, the storage of which poses great risks to the environment and requires huge financial costs. At present, the world has accumulated about 450 thousand tons of nuclear waste, with almost a third of them accounted for by the United States.

A real breakthrough in this direction has become a unique waste-free technology developed by Russian nuclear scientists, which makes it possible to process nuclear waste into new fuel. Apparently it is no coincidence that the project was named "Breakthrough".

In accordance with the project, the Brest-300 reactor was developed - a unique 4th generation closed-loop facility. Its commissioning will finally remove all fears of the possibility of processing waste for military purposes. If we convert all Russian nuclear waste accumulated over 60 years into fuel, then it will be enough to work for several hundred years. This will be done by a specialized company in Tomsk.

The new reactor is distinguished by the highest level of safety, durability, exceptionally "peaceful" specifics, impeccable environmental friendliness and efficiency.
