President Áder hosts some of the world's leading physicists

The scientists briefed the president about research into the handling of high-radiation and long half-life elements of spent fuel rods in nuclear reactors.

President János Áder has met with leading physicists Gábor Szabó, Toshiki Tajima from Japan, Benoit Deveaud and Gerard Mourou from France.

According to MTI, the scientists briefed the president about research into the handling of high-radiation and long half-life elements of spent fuel rods in nuclear reactors. The meeting was organized in relation to a project that is important for Hungary’s energy policy and responsibility.

Following the meeting, László Palkovics, Minister for Innovation and Technology, said some 90 percent of Hungary’s energy mix will be produced carbon-free by 2030 and nuclear energy will play an important part in this process, as will nuclear fission. The remaining 20 percent is planned to be produced from renewable sources, he added.
