Description
Preston Swafford, our Chief Nuclear Officer & Executive Vice-President of our Nuclear team, recently gave this presentation at the 20th Pacific Basin Nuclear Conference in Beijing, China. He spoke about our collaboration with China to develop the Advanced Fuel CANDU Reactor™ (AFCR), a nuclear reactor designed to use recycled uranium and thorium as fuel. We are working to help China achieve its long-term goals of closing its nuclear fuel cycle, increasing energy independence and reducing carbon emissions through widespread deployment of nuclear.
