Kazakh nuclear scientists are conducting research to help Japanese colleagues in the aftermath of Fukushima nuclear power plant accident. One of the main experiments is aimed at studying corium alloy and, its impact on the environment. The National Nuclear Center is developing a new cover for the reactor. These studies will also help to avoid similar accidents in the future.

 

Erlan BATYRBEKOV, DIRECTOR, NATIONAL NUCLEAR CENTER OF KAZAKHSTAN:

We are simulating the corium in the molten core, which is located in the damaged reactor Fukushima. We melt it in our conditions, in the reactor conditions, in conditions outside of the reactor. We observe the physical and chemical properties of the corium. Also, we are also developing recommendations for Japanese partners on eliminating the consequences of the Fukushima accident.
