The hottest us new policies suppress Gates' nuclea

  • Detail

Experts on the new US policy to suppress Gates' nuclear power plant project in China: the United States is worried about the "trump's' science and technology campaign 'has led to the obstruction of Bill Gates' nuclear energy development project in China". According to Wall Street 1, technology tycoon Gates said that due to changes in US policy, a cooperative project in China of American Tera energy company, which he served as chairman of the board, is likely to be unable to continue. According to reports, the project mentioned by Gates is that in September 2015, Tera energy signed a memorandum of understanding with China National Nuclear Corporation to jointly build a "traveling wave reactor" in China. The background of this matter is that in October 2018, the U.S. government imposed new strict restrictions on nuclear exports to China on the grounds that "China seeks to obtain nuclear technology through improper means to improve its military capabilities and undermine the U.S. nuclear industry"

in 2017, Bill Gates was elected as a foreign academician of the Chinese Academy of engineering, and his work unit is "Tera energy company". Wall Street said that the company, founded in 2008, is committed to building smaller, cheaper and safer nuclear reactors than existing nuclear power facilities. The company said it was developing a "traveling wave reactor", which could not only improve the safety level but also reduce the cost due to the use of depleted uranium fuel. Executives of the company said that the cooperation project in China has been carried out for more than three years, but now they are in a hurry to find new partners

it is reported that Tera energy, which has 180 employees, has high hopes for its pilot project in China. 6. It is hoped that the project will verify the technology it has developed for more than 10 years. The head of the company, reefsko, said that finding another partner was by no means easy. The cost of developing a demonstration reactor is about US $1billion, which limits potential partners to rich countries that can fund nuclear energy, and these countries also need to sign relevant agreements with the US government

bell, director of the global energy center of the Atlantic Council, a think tank in Washington, said that countries such as the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Turkey may become one of the options next, but these countries are difficult to replace China's national mission to develop nuclear energy and its huge market size. "China's (nuclear energy market) size is much larger than anywhere else recently.". The expert also said that there is indeed a threat of intellectual property theft in China, but the new U.S. policy and the lack of national consensus on the development of advanced nuclear power resources not only limit the ways for U.S. companies to further develop nuclear energy, but also may expose the United States to the risk that China will independently develop such next-generation technologies

China's nuclear strategy expert and nuclear fuselage weight also decreased significantly by 10 (3) 0% Yang Chengjun, an arms control expert, said in an interview with the global times on the 2nd that the "traveling wave reactor" is the world's latest generation of nuclear reactors, with a weekly strategy of low cost and low pollution: firmly optimistic about electrolytic aluminum and the characteristics of new energy lithium, cobalt and magnetic materials, so there is a lot of room for development. According to the introduction, at present, the technology is still in the research and development stage and has not entered the application stage

Yang Chengjun said that the biggest feature of China's civil nuclear industry is safety and stability. Other countries, including the United States, have experienced nuclear leaks. While developing nuclear weapons, these countries have not developed the corresponding safety equipment for the civil nuclear industry at the same time. Gates chose China as his investment partner because he saw that China already had relatively mature and complete supporting civil nuclear facilities, a mature talent team, advanced management system and mechanism, and so on. At this time, the project was suddenly stopped due to policy changes in the United States. The United States suffered economic losses and had no impact on the development of China's nuclear power industry. China's civil nuclear power development is completely independent and has never received technical and material assistance from other countries. As for some people in the United States who worry that China will use civil nuclear technology for military development, they are completely over worried. For China, the use of civil nuclear technology for military development is simply not worth the loss
