We are pleased to announce the third A-CINCH MOOC webinar. It is the third of a series of "CINCH Talks" organized for the MOOC participants and all the interested people. It will be held on July 28th at 11 a.m. (UTC).

Theme: Basics of Nuclear Fuel Cycle and generation of Radioactive Waste presented by Dr. Vladimir Petrov, Radiochemistry Division, Department of Chemistry – Lomonosov Moscow State University.


Nuclear power is a low-carbon source of energy. This energy is produced at nuclear power plants (NPP). But before energy is released in reactor there are many steps through a so-called Nuclear Fuel Cycle (NFC). NFC includes all the steps from uranium ore mining to energy production from nuclear fuel in nuclear reactors and finally to burial of radioactive waste.

Radioactive wastes are generated in every step of NFC: tailing during mining and extraction of uranium, by-products of uranium purification and enrichment, ion-exchange resins at NPPs, liquid radioactive waste arising during reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel etc. During this seminar we will go briefly through every step of nuclear fuel cycles (it is not the only one) and will see what type of radioactive waste and where are generated in NFC.

The webinar will be hosted on Google Teams platform. Please, fill in the participation form in advance.
