The IAEA and the Japan International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) have agreed to work together to strengthen their technical capacity in the areas of destruction, radioactive waste management and nuclear safety.
The agreement, which will run until 2025, will designate the JAEA as the center of IAEA cooperation, expanding and expanding cooperation between the IAEA and the JAEA.
“An increasing number of governments are in the process of monitoring nuclear power, loss of service and waste management, and nuclear security,” said JAEA President Toshiyo Kodama. “JAEA is committed to contributing to the international community in these two important areas in partnership with the IAEA in this plan.” Waste and Waste Management “IAEA Cooperation Centers are one of our key cooperation strategies, and I am delighted to have JAEA. Mikhail Chudakov, IAEA Deputy Director-General and Head of the Nuclear Energy Department, is now part of this unique team.” “I am happy to see that member states can benefit from a wide range of R&D projects and training programs from Japan.”
The IAEA anticipates work to include waste disposal and related waste disposal programs in the coming decades. Most of the 443 nuclear power plants in the world are currently shutting down, but new reactors need to be financed to stop their operations. A total of 197 power stations have been shut down, 17 of which are fully operational. In addition, 130 oil cycle facilities and 440 research reactors have been shut down.
Together with the IAEA, the JAEA plans to increase the potential for nuclear facilities by developing computational systems, processes, and databases to evaluate radioactive stockpile. This helps to promote the decomposition of reliable and cost-effective reactor resources.
JAEA is the fifth largest IAEA collaborative center in the field of disruption, with specialized dismantling and other activities related to the final phase of the nuclear facility life cycle. Others include the Italian Socialist Gestin Impact Nuclear (SOGIN), the Norwegian Institute of Energy Technology (IFE), the Electricity de France (EDF), and the Slovak Nuclear and Delivery Company (JAVYS). Nuclear Safety Under this agreement, JAEA will be the 8th IAEA Cooperation Center in the field of nuclear security, reaffirming its long-standing partnership with Japan in this unique area.
“This center of cooperation will strengthen Japan’s contribution to the IAEA’s nuclear safety program, particularly in human resource development and IAEA integrated research projects,” said Lidi Evrard, IAEA Deputy Director-General and Head of the Nuclear Department. Safety and Security “also provides an important platform for the IAEA to support its efforts to strengthen nuclear safety in the region.”
The JAEA has served as a regional training center through the Integrated Center for Nuclear Expansion and Nuclear Safety (ISCN) to build and strengthen Asian defense and nuclear security capabilities. ACN is supporting Asia’s first Center of Excellence (COE) in nuclear expansion and nuclear security with various training courses and seminars, and is strengthening its cooperation with stakeholders in these fields.
According to the IAEA-JAEA Agreement, the following areas of cooperation include: Improving the safety of nuclear materials and related equipment; Nuclear safety by transporting nuclear and other radioactive materials; Institutional response infrastructure for uncontrolled materials; Human resource development education and training programs; And nuclear safety detection architecture.
The existing IAEA network will help implement the nuclear safety plan. Recently, a NUSEC portal has been set up to facilitate the exchange of information and the development of cooperation among all the centers of cooperation in the field of nuclear security.
