I'm particularly pleased to represent the United States at a forum on nuclear energy because I believe nuclear power will be an important component of the world's energy picture in the 21st century.
In the United States, one thing that's become clear over the last several decades is that significant barriers make it extremely hard for a utility to make the business decision to order a new nuclear power plant.
Generation IV nuclear energy systems will be able to recycle the most troublesome constituents of spent nuclear fuel, thereby vastly reducing the quantity of highly radioactive waste to be disposed of.
