US Signs Multilateral Agreement for Nuclear Energy Development

28 February 2005


Reinforcing its focus on developing new nuclear power technologies, the US has signed a multilateral cooperative research and development agreement aimed at next-generation nuclear energy systems. The other signatory countries are Canada, France, Japan, and the United Kingdom.

All are part of the 11-country Generation IV International Forum (GIF). Other members are Argentina, Brazil, the European Union, South Africa, South Korea, and Switzerland.

The GIF partners have identified six next generation technologies for development including:

  • the Gas Cooled Fast Reactor

  • the Sodium Fast Reactor

  • the Lead-Cooled Fast Reactor

  • the Molten Salt Reactor

  • the Supercritical Water Reactor

  • the Very High Temperature Reactor

The last concept—the Very High Temperature Reactor—is the current basis of the U.S. research program to develop a cost-effective nuclear system that will directly produce hydrogen as well as electricity. (Earlier post)
