IAEA Director General Extols Nuclear Energy at Expo 2017 Astana

ASTANA – The director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) visited on Monday Expo 2017 Astana, where he praised the advantages of nuclear power.

IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano said that every country needs to make sure it has sufficient energy to drive economic growth, while working to mitigate its effects on climate change – and nuclear power helps meet those challenges.

The IAEA director general also recalled that Tuesday will see the opening of the Low Enriched Uranium Bank (LEU) in the central Asian nation.

Amano said the LEU bank will serve as a last resort mechanism for creating confidence in countries that will be able to obtain low enriched uranium to fuel nuclear plants in case their supplies are unexpectedly interrupted.

The IAEA chief visited the expo’s atomic energy pavilion where he could observe the process of mining uranium by means of the lixiviation method, which is recognized by the IAEA as the most sustainable way to extract uranium.

Expo 2017 Astana, which is an international reflection on the importance of progressing toward a world power system based more and more on renewable energy, will continue until Sept. 10 in this central Asian country.
