Generation IV Reactors to Assert Re-emergence of Nuclear Power Industry


Generation IV nuclear technologies, a set of new reactor designs, are currently being researched and developed by the thirteen members of the Generation IV International Forum (GIF). The goals laid down by the GIF aim at making nuclear energy as the most viable solution for energy production. Generation IV reactors can help boost the nuclear industry as they focus on enhancing reactor safety, efficiency, reliability, economics, proliferation resistance and physical protection. These reactors usually operate at high temperatures that are favorable for hydrogen production, which is a significant advantage considering its rising demand. The high operating efficiencies offered by these technologies help further reduce generation costs related to fuel consumption and spent fuel storage. The excellent safety features of Gen IV will help in the reemergence of nuclear industry alleviating the anti-nuclear concerns mainly triggered after Fukushima accident.
