The International Atomic Energy Agency brings together the fast reactor and related fuel cycle community and countries and the wider public interested in these technologies by organising the International Conference on Fast Reactors and Related Fuel Cycles: Sustainable Clean Energy for the Future or FR21.



At present, PWR light water reactors are the backbone of China's nuclear power industry. At the next stage of development, fast reactors should appear in the country, and fusion energy will become the third stage. In parallel with the development of reactor technologies, the development of the necessary fuel cycles is underway.
