China suspends approval of nuclear power projects

China, which has the largest nuclear reactor construction in the world, suspends approval of new nuclear power projects, which has caused a major setback to the revival of the global nuclear power industry

in the early stage of the development of China's biomedical materials industry

China accounts for nearly 40% of the world's proposed nuclear reactors. China's nuclear power development ambition has so far been a major driver of the global uranium market and is regarded as a key source of future demand

the day before China made the above decision, Germany announced to suspend the extension of the operation period of nuclear power plants in response to the nuclear crisis in Japan. These moves could reshape global energy policy

before the approval of the nuclear safety plan, the approval of nuclear power projects, including those carrying out preliminary work, will be suspended, the State Council said after a meeting on Japan's nuclear leakage

as governments around the world rethink their nuclear power policies, the costs of electricity, natural gas, coal and carbon emissions in Europe have soared to levels never seen in two years

France, which relies on nuclear energy to meet three-quarters of its electricity demand, is an exception. France said it would conduct a safety review of all 58 nuclear power plants in the country, but its energy minister insisted that France was right to take the path of nuclear power development, which not only guaranteed France's energy independence, but also reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Another defender of nuclear power is Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who said that Turkey would promote its plan to build the country's first nuclear power plant with the help of Russia. Turkey is a country with a high incidence of earthquakes

in the United States, Energy Secretary Steven Chu said at a congressional hearing that the Obama administration would promote efforts to expand loan guarantees for new nuclear reactors while investigating the failure of Japanese nuclear power plants after the earthquake

we should fully understand the importance and urgency of nuclear safety, the State Council said. According to the statement issued by the State Council, China will speed up the preparation of nuclear safety plans and conduct a comprehensive inspection of all nuclear facilities in operation or under construction

China plans to build 40gw of nuclear power installed capacity in the next five years. At present, 27 reactors are under construction. China has listed nuclear power as one of the core elements of its future energy structure, regarded nuclear power as a solution to energy shortage and a factor to reduce its dependence on fossil fuels

Chinese officials have previously said that they plan to approve 10 nuclear power projects in the next five years. So far, China has not changed its latest five-year plan

according to the World Nuclear Association, a total of 160 nuclear power projects in China have been proposed. It is unclear how many of the planned reactors will be affected by the decision to suspend approval

any long-term change in China's nuclear power plan will have a significant impact on global uranium mining enterprises such as Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton and Cameco in Canada

industry experts said that the second generation CPR1000 reactors, which account for about 40% of the projects to be built, are most likely to be affected by the policy changes. Third generation reactors, such as the AP1000 built by Westinghouse and the EPR built by Areva, are considered safe and relatively unlikely to be affected. At present, one third of the projects to be built adopt AP1000 design

the statement of China's State Council seeks to reassure the public about the safety of China's nuclear power plan with a chemical fiber output of 49.43 million tons, saying that China has not found abnormal radiation

the statement said that Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao heard a report on Japan. The statement also introduced the measures to be taken to ensure the safety of China's nuclear reactors, including the immediate inspection of all operating reactors, the strengthening of supervision and inspection of reactors, and the preparation of nuclear safety plans

at the time of the statement, the concerns and panic of all walks of life in China were not that the carton testing equipment of Jinan experimental machine factory was broken, and the paper category compression testing instruments were intensified. At present, China is seeing that a nuclear disaster may occur close to home, which is the first time in recent years

on Wednesday, on China's most popular microblogging site, the most searched terms were nuclear power plant and nuclear radiation. The comments on the forum were full of doubts about China's nuclear safety

Beijing drugstore said that the number of people who want to buy iodine is unusual. Its purpose is to prevent nuclear radiation damage. In the dressing room of a gym in Beijing, I heard housewives instructing servants to rush to the store to buy kelp so as not to be unable to buy it

in the past, some Chinese government officials have criticized the excessive speed of domestic nuclear power construction, saying it has brought tension to the supply chain
