Recycling and Nuclear Waste
There are fundamental reasons why nuclear energy is now back center stage. First of all, there is the energy crisis, against the backdrop
of geopolitical upheavals that make energy sovereignty absolutely strategic. There is, of course, the fight
global warming. By helping to produce low-carbon, reliable electricity at a competitive cost, nuclear power stands out as one of the
solutions for achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. On another level - and marking a point of honor in France - the nuclear industry is the third largest domestic industrial sector.
The planned investments in nuclear power, particularly for the construction of new reactors, are therefore positive news for French industry and for employment.
Nevertheless, the nuclear industry remains humble. While nuclear power is once again enjoying strong support around the world and with the French public, there are still many preconceived ideas about the industry, as well as "hot-button issues" such as waste management, nuclear safety and security, and the impact of nuclear activities on the environment.
We believe that educating, enlightening and answering questions about nuclear energy, in all transparency, is a prerequisite for building support. For while nuclear power can demonstrate that it is an indispensable energy resource for the future,
French nuclear expertise goes far beyond energy itself, moving into unexpected fields today such as health and battery recycling!
