There is high interest internationally in both developing and industrialized countries in the design of innovative supercritical water cooled reactors (SCWRs). This interest arises from the high thermal efficiencies (44-45%) and improved economic competitiveness promised by this concept, which utilizes and builds upon the recent developments of highly efficient fossil power plants. The SCWR is one of the six concepts included in the Generation-IV International Forum (GIF). In support of Member States� efforts in the area of SCWRs, the IAEA started in 2008 a Coordinated Research Project (CRP) on �Heat Transfer Behaviour and ...
program. The support, encouragement and participation of the United States and Western European governments in Iran's nuclear program continued until the 1979 Iranian Revolution that toppled the Shah of Iran. 1 After the 1979 revolution, the Iranian government temporarily disbanded elements of the program, and then revived it with less Western assistance than during the pre-revolution era. Iran's nuclear program has included several research sites, two uranium mines, a research reactor , and uranium processing facilities that include three known uranium enrichment plants . The long delayed startup of Iran's first ...
Future of a Fusion Kind
Fusion, a form of nuclear energy created by the merging of light atoms, could provide the world with a safe, environmentally responsible and abundant source of energy. However, one of the greatest challenges faced by the scientific community today is demonstrating the scientific and technological feasibility of harnessing the power nuclear fusion generates. To better tackle this challenge, the international fusion community is joining forces and stepping up collaboration, particularly around the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), the world´s first demonstration reactor for fusion power currently under ... market research, surveys and trends

NTI: Databases: Middle East and North Africa - UN Resolution 1540
The Middle East / North Africa is a critical region for the implementation of UNSCR 1540 as nearly one-third of the states either possess some type of nuclear, biological, or chemical (NBC) weapons capability or are suspected of having related research programs. The region also served as an operational hub in A.Q. Khan's illicit nuclear trafficking network, and several states continue to provide financial and logistical support to terrorist organizations. Of increasing concern in the region is the ongoing investigation into Iranian and Syrian activities, which suggest that these governments, who are also known sponsors of ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
NTI: Databases: East Asia and the Pacific - UN Resolution 1540

Each sub-region has its own characteristics, and there are substantial differences between them. The level of UNSCR 1540 reporting ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
NPT RevCon ends with a consensus Final Document
The NPT Review Conference ended last Friday with the adoption by consensus of a Final Document that includes both a review of commitments and a forward looking action plan for nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation and the promotion of the peaceful uses of nuclear energy.  In the early part of last week it was unclear if consensus would be reached, as states entered last-minute negotiations over contentious issues.  While the consensus document represents a real achievement and is a relief after the failure of the last Review Conference in 2005 to produce a similar document, much of the language in the action plan has been ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Google Answers: Sterile Insect technology
Hi curiousrao, When you say ?sterile insect technology?, I think that you mean ?Sterile insect technique (SIT)?. SIT is a biological control technique whereby sterile males are released into a the environment. The sterile males mate with fertile females that would have otherwise mated with fertile males. Males are sterilized using radiation or chemosterilants. Females that mate with sterile males are unable to produce viable offspring. SIT is currently being used for agricultural pests like screw worms and fruit flies. Although it was used in El Salvador before their civil war, SIT for mosquitoes is in stages of ...
