Here’s a very interesting article about the Chinese nuclear energy industry. Obvious triggered by the latest scares surrounding the situation in Japan, it seems to suggest that, if you are going nuclear, there is a better way of doing it. I hope our politicians and especially, Chris Huhne, have read it.
I was interested to read somebody’s comments on the site this came from. These focused on the issue of a very corrosive salt solution being used in the process and how this made it worse than the Uranium based system we have. I’m no expert, but if that’s the only drawback, to what otherwise sounds like a much better and more importantly safer way of nuclear energy, all I can say is – hasn’t he heard of ceramic lined pipes?
