IS NUCLEAR ENERGY THE SOLUTION TO THE ENERGY CRISIS?

At the end of March, an agreement on a joint venture will be signed between Serbia and the Russian state company “Rosatom”, which will start building the Center for Nuclear Science by the end of the year, announced Minister of Innovation Nenad Popovic at the World Exhibition in Dubai. Popovic believes that the solution to the energy crisis in the world is the production of nuclear energy, and says that Serbia will discuss this not only with the Russians, but also with the Chinese, Koreans and Americans.

The agreement on the opening of the joint Center for Nuclear Science was signed in 2019, when President Putin was in Belgrade.

The location is being chosen with Russian experts, and it is known that it will be somewhere on the Danube, that it will be built for four years, and it is estimated that the Center will contribute a lot to the education system of Serbia.

“The project will be realized in several phases. For a start, he will focus on medical technologies. “We will create a good scientific base for education and non-energy application of nuclear energy in Serbia and other countries in the region and beyond,” said Evgenij Pakermanov from Rosatom.

Miodrag Krmor, a professor at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics in Novi Sad, said that it was a center that would be able to produce isotopes for medicine and agriculture.

“It is planned to produce semiconductors in that center. There will be other industrial examples concerning most of the material. In principle, he would pull a few branches behind him “, stated Professor Krmor.

Although the construction of nuclear power plants was banned by law in Serbia after the Chernobyl accident 30 years ago, they have been talked about more and more in recent months. President Vučić also confirmed after talks with Putin in Sochi that the talks with Rosatom were also a topic.

“We are ready to offer our Serbian partners the best solutions and technologies. But it must be a national decision, a decision of the Serbian state and people. And if it is passed, we are ready to support it “, stated Evgenij Pakermanov from” Rosatom “.

Minister without portfolio in charge of innovation and technological development Nenad Popovic said that there were initial ideas regarding the construction of a nuclear power plant in Serbia.

“Serbia must do what all the most modern economies in the world are doing. All those who want to improve their economy must provide cheap and clean electricity to their companies. “The only way for Serbia to do that in the future is to build a nuclear power plant, and I am sure that in the future, in the next year, we will talk to many partners, from the European Union, Korea, America and Russia,” he said. Popovic.

In order to move from talks to concrete agreements, the law should first be changed and the moratorium lifted, the issues of raw materials and waste should be resolved, experts should be educated, and the negative public attitude towards nuclear energy should be changed. That is why nuclear power plants are at least a decade away from Serbia, experts say at the exhibition of world achievements in Dubai.
