Reuters has published a ’Special Report’ called ’The U-S- government lab behind China’s nuclear power push’, which looks at the ongoing research on thorium, where U.S. and China collaborate.
China is getting about 80% of its energy and a whole lot of pollution from burning coal. Its nuclear sector is under considerable growth and based on scarce uranium reserves. However, China has massive reserves of thorium, and the prospect of cheaper nuclear power with a secure domestic supply is a powerful attraction.
It is a report well worth reading, and you find it by clicking on the link below.
