Here is just a brief post to share the English version of the talk I gave in Tokyo past September on Nuclear Energy and Nuclear Safety.
The presentation aimed at answering the following questions:
- Why Japan needs Nuclear Energy ?
- Why Nuclear Energy needs a new generation of reactors ? (so called Fast Breeder Reactors)
- What are FBR all about ?
- What are the basic principles of Nuclear Safety, and how were they challenged during the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Fukushima 1 NPP accident?
- How “built-in safety” will improve it in the future ?
