The current energy supply crisis is reprioritising energy projects and accelerating plans for nuclear power development. Furthermore, it requires creating resilient nuclear energy systems for which the fuel cycle industry has a central role. As recently confirmed by the latest IPCC report rapid nuclear development is key to address the climate net zero emergency.
This is the time to review the necessity to strengthen the security of supplies, to optimise the use of natural resources, to minimise the environmental impact in a sustainable manner and move towards a circular economy.
GLOBAL 2022 taking place in Reims France during 3 days will provide an outstanding forum for high-level experts and stakeholders from around the world, to share strategic developments, recent technological advances, new markets – including new type of reactors’ needs – and applications that lead to enhance the positioning of nuclear power as well as its public support. The complete view of the nuclear fuel cycle and its evolution, from mining to recycling up to final disposal of waste will be discussed to shed light on the future of nuclear power.
